M and J-sets similarity. Embedded Julia midgets
Tan Lei's theorem says, that the M-set at a preperiodic
point (e.g. at the band merging point M = -1.543689 in the second
picture) and the Julia set J(M) at z = M are similar and have the
same scaling constant.
In the vicinity of the periodic point P = -1.75488 (in the center of
the period-3 midget) the Mandelbrot set is similar again to the Julia set
J(P). As since fco3 is renormalizable for
c = P , we see the J(0) set at z = P and its shrinking
copies (instead of sequence of tiny midgets in the M-set).
At last this image corresponds to A = -1.7465234 at the cusp of
the period-3 midget. The point A lays from outside of tiny cardioid,
therefore we see small copies of the cauliflower Cantor dust J(0.35)
To make the last step we look at the M-set near A . As since at small
scale the M-set is similar to corresponding J(A) set, we see embedded
J(0.35) midget in the Mandelbrot set (in the right applet).
Note however, that this "cauliflower" is replaced by the M-midget in the
left window. Every embedded cauliflower has a tiny M-midget in its center.
