Exercises for Chaos Under Control

Chapter 4: The Family Portrait of Attractors

37.[C] (a) For the tent map, take x0 = 0.5; plot the graph of x1, x2, x3, and x4 as functions of s, with s ranging from 0 to 2.

(b) Compare the Bifurcation Diagram for the tent map (using TENT/BIFURCATION) with the graphs pictured in (a). What conclusion can you make?

38. Using the results of exercise 37, verify that the band-merging of the Bifurcation Diagram occurs at s = sqrt(2).

39.[C] Perform several magnifications around s = 1 and x = 1/2, using TENT/BIFURCATION. Show both branches of the band-merging have band-merging branches themselves.
