level curves of escape time

Drawing level curves of escape time for complement of M-set

The boundary of the Mandelbrot Set is the limit of the Nth lemniscate
Lemniscate = contour line = border of level set = level curve

The lemniscates were generated and factored in maxima by the following commands:

Miguel Romera gives an algorithm for drawing contour lines of M-set.
According to Miguel Romera definitions contour lines may be :
Miguel Romera's definition of "equipotential" lines is aproximately true for big escape radius when borders of bands made with discrete (integer) Escape-Time Algorithm = level set method ( LSM ) are aproximating true equipotential lines = level curves of potential

and here is image made with M Romera procedure:

As Inigo Quilez says:
This "method is basically equivalent to drawing a normal escape time picture of Mandelbrot set,
and then detectingthe edges with sobel or lapalacian filter".

Also one can create " these images with the open source fractal tool Xaos, using the mandelbrot formula and the edge detection filter".
