Animation for Steven Strogatz - columnist for The New York Times - of the classic newton fractal.
by teamfresh

This fractal is based on using Newton's method to solve 1 - z^3, with the colouring based primarily on which root of the equation is found, and secondarily on how long it took to find it.

The depth of this zoom is e14 - Note that the three different colors meet together in infinitely many different places, and wherever two of the colors meet, the other color always joins them.
