Time-Series Analysis for Generalized Logistic Maps with z-Unimodality

This Demonstration shows a time-series plot of an iterative map with a barcode attachment. The test map, , generalizes the well-known logistic map [1–7]. Here is the iteration number, is the iterate of starting from the initial value , is the main control parameter, and is the subcontrol parameter (which determines the unimodality, the degree of the local maximum of ).
