Can anyone suggest me some good references for studying HENON MAPS. I have no information about these maps at all. So please suggest some references for going through its basics.

Did you mean the Henon Map from dynamical systems? If so, see the nice list of references at the link. If so, I can recommend several more wonderful books, but you can find more on the web and on Wiki. Regards – Amzoti Feb 2 '13 at 13:32
