The Julia set renormalization

On the picture below the central U' region (limited by the blue circle) is mapped by the f-1 twice to the left (inside the green circle). Then the circle is mapped one-to-one (quasi-linear) into the U region (inside the red curve). That is the whole f-1o2 map from U' to U is quadratic-like.
Controls: Drag the blue circle to change its radius. Click mouse + <Alt>/<Ctrl> to zoom In/Out.
The inverse fc-2(z) map has four branches (see Iterations of inverse maps)
    ±(±(z - c)½ - c)½.
To get the green circle from the red U region we shall take -(z - c)½, therefore the whole inverse quadratic-like map is
    fc-2(z) = ±(-(z - c)½ - c)½.
Iterations of this map are shown above in the red color. As since U' lies in U, therefore iterations of a point in U stay in U' forever and we get the renormalized Julia set homeomorphic to J(0) (i.e. a circle). To the right you see even more impressive the renormalized J(-1) midget inside the J(-1.306) set.

Renormalization of the J(-1.5438) set below corresponding to the Misiurewicz band merging point is homeomorphic to the J(-2) set (i.e. the straight [-2, 2] segment). J(-1.4304) corresponding to the second band merging point is renormalized in J(-1.5438) (the red midget in the center is equivalent to the whole first picture).
