The discrete logistic equation is . Vary to observe the change in behavior of the solution, with chaotic behavior when . Change the initial value to observe the dependence of the dynamics on the initial value. Alter checking the second solution check box, observe the second solution that starts at , which illustrates the sensitivity of the solutions to the initial data. The last slider allows you to change the difference .
