            The problem is that we are exploring environments based upon irrational numbers through computer machinery which works with finite rationals ! ( Alessandro Rosa )
  • there are Cremer Julia set for quadratic polynomial,
  • there are no images of such Julia sets
  • A Cremer Julia set has no interior and can never disconnect the plane [1]
  • It contains single or double comb.[2] "Objects such as combs (homeomorphs of the product of a Cantor set and an interval) had been expected to be found within hedgehogs." (Kingshook Biswas [3]
  • Cremer Julia sets are not locally connected [4][5]



For Cremer Julia set internal angle should be non-Brjuno number (irrational number, non-diophantine ).

"The Cremer parameters are on the boundaries of hyperbolic components at specific internal angles (argument of the mulitplier). If you know the angle, you can compute the parameter explicitly for periods 1, 2, 3 and numerically for all periods. If I remember correctly, a simple angle is .01001000100001000001 ... times 2PI. But of course there are Siegel angles and parabolic angles which are the same for the first 100 digits.

... Maybe that is one of the reasons, why you cannot draw them..." Wolf Jung

"A Cremer internal angle is obtained as 0.10001000000000000010000... with fast growing 0-gaps, but any finite approximation is parabolic." ( Wolf Jung )


One can think about Cremer Julia set as :

  • parabolic Julia set with infinite period
  • Julia set with Siegel disk with infinite many digits


  • Rempe’s straight brush model
  • Pseudo hedgehogs by Cheritat[6]



  • non-linearizable [8]
  • Hedgehog space [9]

small cyclesEdit

"the “small cycles property”: Every neighborhood of the origin contains infinitely many periodic orbits " ( CREMER FIXED POINTS AND SMALL CYCLES by LIA PETRACOVICI )[10]

External raysEdit

Parameter rayEdit

" For Cremer parameters, there is a unique parameter ray landing, but the dynamics is more complicated." ( Wolf Jung )
