# Filled Julia set

How would I find the filled Julia set for $f(z)=z^3$? I know it should be the filled unit circle, but I don't quite understand the math. This is what I have so far: Fixed points $z^3=z$ so $z=1,-1,0,\infty$ $f'(1)=3>1$--repelling $f'(-1)=3>1$--repelling $f'(0)=0<1$--super attracting $f'(\infty)=0<1$--super attracting

It is clear that $z$ has bounded orbit under $f$ iff $|z|\le1$.
• @lhf Would you believe that the Julia set of $f(z)=z^3-3z$ is the interval $[-2,2]$! In fact, the dynamics of $f$ on $\mathbb C\setminus [-2,2]$ are semi-conjugate to $g(z)=z^3$ on the exterior of the unit disk via $\varphi(z)=z+1/z$. Of course, finding such a simple Julia set is highly unusual and you are completely correct in pointing out that we should often use a computer to sketch it. – Mark McClure Dec 17 '15 at 21:49
