Controls: drag the blue curve by mouse to change C value. Hold <Shift> to change starting point x_{o}. L is the Lyapunov exponent calculated for shown finite orbit segment. |
c = -1.5749 corresponds to the superstable period-7 cycle. Chaotic transient length grows for more narrow windows of regular dynamics. Therefore for tiny windows (near any chaotic c value) one can distinguish regular or chaotic dynamics only for very large n. |
