A well-known example from the study of discrete
dynamical systems is the logistic map. The map
is defined by , where .
The points x=0 and are both fixed points
of the map. Unlike the linear map,
calculating the Lyapunov exponent is not trivial
since the derivative
is not constant for the map. We can, however, do a few
computational experiments to better understand this map.
