The logistic map is probably the most famous and simplest example of a function from the unit interval onto itself that produces chaotic behavior. Images of its time series and cobweb diagrams are iconic to many introductory textbooks on nonlinear dynamics. This Demonstration lets you vary an interpolating function by dragging 2D control points to construct arbitrarily shaped maps from the unit interval to itself.
