Structure of parameter plane edit
The phase space of a quadratic map is called its parameter plane. Here:
 is constant
 is variable
There is no dynamics here. It is only a set of parameter values. There are no orbits on the parameter plane.
The parameter plane consists of :
 The Mandelbrot set
 The bifurcation locus = boundary of Mandelbrot set
 Bounded hyperbolic components of the Mandelbrot set = interior of Mandelbrot set ^{[1]}
Structure of parameter plane from programmers point of view:
 exterior of Mset
 Each component is surrounded by an atom domain ( disc with radius 4 times bigger, for cardioids radius has about the square root of the size).
 Each component has a nucleus at its center, which has a periodic orbit containing 0.

curves or paths edit
The Mandelbrot set contains smooth curves:
 the intersection with the real axis M ∩ R = [−2, 1/4] = real slice of Mandelbrot set
 the main cardioid of M, which is the set of parameters c for which fc has an attracting or indifferent fixed point (of course, this is smooth except at the cusp c = 1/4).^{[2]}

Strict ( math ) definition from the paper Periodic Orbits, Externals Rays and the Mandelbrot Set: An Expository Account by John W. Milnor
Theorem 1.2. The Wake . The two corresponding parameter rays land at a single point of the parameter plane. These rays, together with their landing point, cut the plane into two open subsets
 and
with the following property: A quadratic map has a repelling orbit with portrait if and only if , and has a parabolic orbit with portrait if and only if .
Definitions:
 the Mandelbrot set
 This open set will be called the wake in parameter space (compare Atela [A]),
 will be called the root point of this wake
 The intersection^{[22]} will be called the limb of the Mandelbrot set
 The open arc consisting of
 all angles of dynamic rays which are contained in the interior of S1,
 or all angles of parameter rays which are contained in , will be called the characteristic arc for the orbit portrait

How to move on parameter plane ? edit

Values of C for each frame evaluates by equation: C=r*cos(a)+i*r*sin(a), where: a=(0..2*Pi), r=0.7885. Thus, parameter С outlines circle with a radius r=0.7885 and a center at origin of the complex plane.

How to choose step of a move ? edit
 fixed size step / adaptive size step
 minimal size of the move
"For c values that could not be represented accurately by C++ double data type I calculated the images using interval arithmetics with tiny intervals (border values being fractions of 2^25, interval width 2^25) encompassing the published value (as needed for real or imaginary part or both) (values were computed using wolframalpha to multiply large integers). Given is the left (smaller) border value, the right is obtained by adding one." marcm200^{[24]}
What is the reason for : 2^25 ?
"When I started with this article back in March this year, my initial formulas were z^2+c and z^2+c*z. In expanded form with real coordinates: z=(x+i*y) and c=(d+e*i): ( x²y² + d, 2xy + e ) or ( d*x + x²  e*y  y² , e*x + d*y + 2x*y ) To accurately represent a sum, the widest two terms can be apart is 53 bits (mantissa precision for C++ double) and all other must lie in this range. The smallest nonzero value of x,y is "axis range / pixel count", i.e. 4 (escape radius of 2, hence axis 2..+2) divided by 2^refinement level. So for x^2 this goes to 2^26 as the lowest possible value for x. And since d,e are multiplied with x in the 2nd formula, the same goes for d and e. As I do not like to work "on the edge" I used a buffer of 12 bits and came to the lowest value of 2^25 for d,e (and refinement level limit of 27 which is currently outside a reasonable range). For the 1st formula z^2+c, the seed value could go as little as 2^48 (stated in the article) as it is only added. For long double and float128 one could go lower in both formulas, but I haven't explored that."marcm200^{[25]}

Simple classification edit
 exterior of Mandelbrot set
 Mandelbrot set
 boundary of Mandelbrot set
 interior of Mandelbrot set ( hyperbolic parameter)
 centers,
 other internal points ( points of internal rays )
Definitions
 a parameter c in the boundary of Mandelbrot set ∂M is semihyperbolic if the critical point is nonrecurrent and belongs to the Julia set^{[44]}
 A typical example of semihyperbolic parameter is a Misiurewicz point: We say a parameter ˆc is Misiurewicz if the critical point of fcˆ is a preperiodic point.
partial classification of boundary points edit
Classification :^{[45]}
 Boundaries of primitive and satellite hyperbolic components:
 Boundary of M without boundaries of hyperbolic components:
 nonrenormalizable (Misiurewicz with rational external angle and other).
 renormalizable
 finitely renormalizable (Misiurewicz and other).
 infinitely renormalizble (Feigenbaum and other). Angle in turns of external rays landing on the Feigenbaum point are irrational numbers
 non hyperbolic components ( we believe they do not exist but we cannot prove it ) Boundaries of nonhyperbolic components would be infinitely renormalizable as well.
Here "other" has not a complete description. The polynomial may have a locally connected Julia set or not, the critical point may be rcurrent or not, the number of branches at branch points may be bounded or not ...

Is parameter tweaking an acquired art or just random chance?
"From my own experience with monocritical polynomials and Lyapunov diagrams, all my images I found purely by chance. For z^2+c e.g. as long as you're in the same hyperbolic component, the shape changes only in the sense, that a fat spiral might become thinner, but the number of arms stays constant. If you move the c value out of that component into another  and if this 2nd component is not directly attached to the first, then, I'm not aware of a direct way of telling what it would look like there. Usually I perform a parameter walk just computing black and white escape images with periodicity. Then for the interesting shapes/periods I apply a color walk with some gradients that looked fine in previous images. But that's more or less guessing. If you want to turn more into the constructinganimage from a vision you have, you might try two articles: genetic algorithm and Leja points" marcm200^{[50]}
Mandelbrot set : z^6+ A*z+c How do you find such intereseting examples ?
" I'm running from time to time an A,cparameter space walk (brute force) in a rather wide grid (2..+2 in ~0,01 or larger steps) for the family z^n+A*z+c, adding a small random dyadic fraction to the 4d coordinates to get variation. Following numerically the orbits of the critical points with a rather high max it of 25000 it's possible to get the number of attracting cycles and their length to some accuaracy level in a decent time. If those A,cparameter pairs pass some filters (mostly sum of length of cycles and diversity) I scan through small overview pictures manually. Then I use interesting A,c pairs (shapewise or from the filter values) and some small deviations from it to compute level 1012 TSA images, as sets wiith similar shapes can show a different dynamical behaviour w.r.t. the level at which interior cells emerge. I'll take the fastest one and see how many cycles can be detected up to level 1819." marcm200^{[51]}
