Consider the logistic map given by


, where .

One method available to control the chaos in this one-dimensional system consists of applying periodic proportional pulses once every iterations ( when ). The number of fixed points is equal to . For a specific choice of , there are only a few values of that stabilize the logistic map. These ranges are restricted to , where .
