One of the conspicuous features of real slices of bicritical rational maps is the existence of Tricorn-type hyperbolic components. Such a hyperbolic component is called invisible if the non-bifurcating sub-arcs on its boundary do not intersect the closure of any other hyperbolic component. Numerical evidence suggests an abundance of invisible Tricorn-type components in real slices of bicritical rational maps. In this paper, we study two different families of real bicritical maps and characterize invisible Tricorn-type components in terms of suitable topological properties in the dynamical planes of the representative maps. We use this criterion to prove the existence of infinitely many invisible Tricorn-type components in the corresponding parameter spaces. Although we write the proofs for two specific families, our methods apply to generic families of real bicritical maps.

Figure 2.  For every parameter in the shaded region, the two free critical points of $ N_a $ are complex conjugate. The upper red component is denoted by $ \mathcal{U} $
Figure 1.  A part of the parameter plane of the family $ \mathcal{N}_4^* $ that contains a Tricorn component (enclosed by white curves) with two visible and one invisible boundary arcs. The white region at the bottom represents the complement of $ \mathcal{U} $
Figure 10.  Left: A Tricorn component (enclosed by white parabolic arcs) with an invisible parabolic arc. Right: A blow-up of the parameter plane near the invisible parabolic arc (on the left) shows an invisible Tricorn component (enclosed by white parabolic arcs)
Figure 11.  Left: A tongue component of period $ 2 $ with an invisible co-root parabolic arc $ \mathcal{C}_2 $. The parabolic arcs $ \mathcal{C}_1 $ and $ \mathcal{C}_3 $ contain bare regions. Right: A bounded Tricorn component with all three co-root parabolic arcs invisible
Figure 9.  The $ N_a^{\circ 2n} $-orbit of $ c_a $ exits through the gate and lands in $ W_a $, which is contained in the basin $ \mathcal{B}_1 $
Figure 3.  The main cardioid of the "baby Mandelbrot set" (in black) is a Mandelbrot component
Figure 5.  Subdivision rule that defines the sequence of critically finite branched covers $ f_{n}: \mathbb{S}^2\to \mathbb{S}^2 $ where $ n>1 $. Black edges $ \alpha, \beta, \gamma, \delta $ terminate at $ \infty $ in both the domain (top) and the range (bottom). Light blue edges in the domain represent preimage edges of $ f_{n} $ that are not edges in the range. Both domain and range graphs are symmetric about the horizontal and vertical coordinate axes.
Figure 4.  The dynamical plane of the map in $ \mathcal{N}_4^* $ corresponding to $ n = 3 $ from Proposition 5.3. The basins of $ 1 $ and $ -1 $ are colored red and green. The non-fixed critical points are in a period 6 cycle indicated by the white arrows
Figure 6.  Left: The characteristic Fatou component of a parameter belonging to a Tricorn component. The three dynamical co-roots, two of which are visible and one invisible, are marked. Right: The characteristic Fatou component of a parameter belonging to a Tricorn component. The three dynamical co-roots, each of which is invisible, are marked
Figure 7.  Left: A blow-up of the dynamical plane (of a parameter on a parabolic arc of a Tricorn component) around a visible characteristic parabolic point. Here, the characteristic parabolic point is on the boundary of $ \mathcal{B}^{\mathrm{imm}}_{-1} $. Right: A blow-up of the dynamical plane (of a parameter on a parabolic arc of a Tricorn component) around an invisible characteristic parabolic point. Here, the characteristic point is in the accumulation set of the pre-periodic Fatou components of $ \mathcal{B}_1 $ (and of $ \mathcal{B}_{-1} $), but not on the boundary of any single component thereof. Consequently, there is a 'Julia path' in the repelling cylinder connecting $ \partial U_1^+ $ and $ \partial U_1^- $
Figure 8.  A blow-up of the dynamical plane of a near-parabolic parameter showing the eggbeater dynamics "near" an invisible parabolic point
Figure 12.  Left: The dynamical plane of a parameter on the co-root arc $ \mathcal{C}_2 $ of a tongue of period $ 2 $. The only dynamical co-root on the boundary of $ U_1 $ is $ p_2(U_1) $ (which is also the characteristic parabolic point for parameters on $ \mathcal{C}_2 $), and it is invisible. The dynamical roots $ p_1(U_1) $ and $ p_3(U_1) $ on $ \partial U_1 $ are visible. Right: The dynamical plane of a parameter on a co-root arc $ \mathcal{C}_2 $ of a bounded Tricorn component. For this parameter, each dynamical co-root $ p_k(U_1) $ is invisible. In particular, the characteristic parabolic point $ p_2(U_1) $ is invisible (marked in black)
