Boundary trace 

## BSM/J

BSM = Boundary Scanning Method

This algorithm is used when dynamical plane consist of two of more basins of attraction. For example for c=0.

It is not appropiate when interior of filled Julia set is empty, for example for c=i.

Description of algorithm :

• for every pixel of dynamical plane $z$ do :
• compute 4 corners ( vertices) of pixel $z_{lt},z_{rt},z_{rb},z_{lb}$ ( where lt denotes left top, rb denotes right bottom, ... )
• check to which basin corner belongs ( standard escape time and bailout test )
• if corners do not belong to the same basin mark it as Julia set

Examples of code

• program in Pascal
• via convolution with a kernel
