Cobweb Diagram for Generalized Logistic Maps with z-Unimodality
This Demonstration shows the cobweb diagram for , which generalizes the well-known logistic map [1–8]. 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 ).
