These images were created from octonion math, an eight-dimensional algebra. Various formulas were plotted (as three-dimensional slices), with two different multiplication tables. One is known as the C+ table and another, a hypercomplex analog of the C+ set . The program QuaSZ was used to draw each picture... QuaSZ makes it easy to generate pictures from cquat and octonion math.
