The Hénon map is the two-dimensional map described by the equations

,

.

The plot shows the last 36 coordinates after iterations of the Hénon map using the initial point .

To obtain an interesting region of periodic and chaotic behavior, we use values between 0.91 and 1.41 with . Changing these values will give very similar results.
