ABSTRACT
Julia sets are fractal subsets of the complex plane defined
by a simple iterative algorithm. Julia sets are specified by
a single complex parameter and their appearances are
indexed by the Mandelbrot set. This study presents a
simple generalization of the quadratic Julia set that re
quires two complex parameters. The generalization causes
