X(n) n 3 2 4 5 2. Newton's Method of Computing the Square Root of a Positive Number: The equation x 2 =a can be written in the form x = ~ (x + ajx). This form leads to Newton's method x(n + 1) = ~2 [x(n) + _a_] . x(n) (a) Show that this difference equation has two equilibrium points -,j{i and ,j{i. (b) Sketch a stair step diagram for a = 3, x(O) = I, and x(O) = -1 (c) What can you conclude from (b)? 3. C. Pielou [ 1] referred to the following equation as the discrete logistic equation: x(n + 1) = ax(n) 1 + f3x(n) , a> 1, f3 < 0.

The computation now becomes unbearable and one should resort to a computer to do the work. 544090 .... 544090 .... When ll = tL 2 , the 22 cycle bifurcates into a 2 3 cycle. The new 23 cycle is attracting for tL 3 < ll :::: tL 4 for some number tL 4 • This process of double bifurcation continues indefinitely.

X(n + 1) = 5- (6/x(n)). 7. Let f(x) = ax 3 - bx + 1, where a, b which {0, I} is an attracting 2 cycle. E R. 5 Periodic Points and Cycles 37 Consider the so-called Baker's function defined as follows. 1 for 0 < 2 - x -<- B(x)= 12x 2x- 1 1 for- < x < 1 - 2 Problems 8, 9, and 10 are concerned with the Baker's function B(x) on [0, 1]. 8. * (Hard) Draw the Baker's function B(x ). Then find the number of n-periodic points of B. 9. Sketch the graph of B 2 and then find the 2 cycles of the Baker's function B.
