The Julia set renormalization
On the picture below the central U' region (limited by the blue circle) is
mapped by the f-1 twice to the left (inside the green circle).
Then the circle is mapped one-to-one (quasi-linear) into the U
region (inside the red curve). That is the whole
f-1o2 map from U' to U is quadratic-like.
Controls: Drag the blue circle to change its radius.

The inverse fc-2(z) map has four branches
(see Iterations of inverse maps)
±(±(z - c)½
To get the green circle from the red U region we shall take
-(z - c)½, therefore the whole inverse quadratic-like
±(-(z - c)½ - c)½.
Iterations of this map are shown above in the red color.
As since U' lies in U, therefore iterations
of a point in U stay in U' forever and we get the renormalized
Julia set homeomorphic to J(0) (i.e. a circle).
To the right you see even more impressive the renormalized
J(-1) midget inside the J(-1.306) set.
Renormalization of the J(-1.5438) set below corresponding to the
Misiurewicz band merging point is homeomorphic
to the J(-2) set (i.e. the straight [-2, 2] segment).
J(-1.4304) corresponding to the second band merging point is
renormalized in J(-1.5438) (the red midget in the center is
equivalent to the whole first picture).
