comment Program to find closest function to fit arbitrary data
Nice one. It looks like the polynomial fitting (with higher orders) are the most flexible. The thing it can't do is handle a non-linear input, or more than one input, but it will still be useful. Before I tick yours, I'll wait a couple more days, and then maybe offer a bounty.

comment Is a 3D Mandelbrot-esque fractal analogue possible?
Hi, just seen your answer! (only 2 years late ;) Many thanks. Your render looks interesting, but alas, it isn't what I was looking for. There are 'smoothed out' sections ("whipped cream") which indicate this isn't the real McCoy, and so it's more similar to the Julia 4D fractal I was speaking about. Outside of the usual 2D Mandelbrot shape your creation embodies, I very much doubt you'd see stunning detail if you zoomed in, though it may still look somewhat nice anyway if you want to give it a go!

It's hard to pin down the essential aesthetic features mathematically. But lack of 'smeared' sections, lack of discontinuities, and (nearly) spheres on the surface seems like a good place to start from an informal perspective.
