Period doubling bifurcation in a quadratic map

I am attempting the find $\mu$ for which the map $$x_{n+1} = \mu + x_n^2$$ undergoes a period doubling bifurcation. I understand that finding the fixed points of the map is the first step towards ...

Bounding error when iterating a function

If I am iterating some function $f$ that goes to infinity as x goes to infinity with error $o(g(x))$, for example, is there anyway to bound the error? To be more specific, if I have some sequence ...

Why computing Fatou coordinate is so hard?

I'm trying to make images of Fatou coordinate for some polynomial maps. If I'm not wrong there is no explicit general formula/method for computing Fatou coordinate near parabolic fixed point. Is ...

Dynamics of the repetitions of $f(z) = z^{2} +\frac{1}{4}$

This is probably a classic and most likely an easy question, but I was not able to find an answer. If we have the iteration $z_{n+1}=g(z_n)$, where $$g(z) = z + a z^{2},$$ with $a\ne 0$, then using a ...

Special map $f(x_n)=x_{{n+1} [\mod 4]}$

As mentioned in the headline I am considering the map $f(x_n)=x_{{n+1} [\mod 4]}$. It looks a little bit similar to the dyadic (bernoulli) map but instead of $\mod 1$ we have $\mod 4$ which means that ...

How to find periodic solutions using a graphing calculator

We have the model $X_{n+1} = 4\left(X_n - \dfrac{1}{2}\right)^2$ with a given $X_0$ on the domain $[0,1]$. We have the following question: Use your graphing calculator to figure out if there are ...

Finding the best real value for $C$.

Consider the recurrence $f_{n+1}=f_n + \ln(f_n)$ with $f_0=2$. Also consider differential equations of type $g(0)=2$ and $\dfrac{d g}{d x}=\ln(g(x)- C \cdot \ln(g(x)))$. Lets call the solution ...

What are the mathematical and “real world” applications of “quadratic maps”, a type of dynamical system?

If we suppose that we can get a generating function for any "quadratic map (as in dynamical systems)", what are the mathematical applications? Also, what are the "real world" applications of this? ...

Solving Linear Systems with Singular Matrices

Good morning! For (say, homogenous) linear systems of the form $$x_{n+1} = A x_n,$$ where $A$ is a nonsingular matrix, each initial value problem can be solved by the method of finding a general ...
