Raw, Cecil J. G.; Stacey, Larry M.
Collegiate Microcomputer, v7 n2 p104-10 May 1989
Presents two short microcomputer programs which illustrate features of nonlinear dynamics, including steady states, periodic oscillations, period doubling, and chaos. Logistic maps are explained, inclusion in undergraduate chemistry and physics courses to teach nonlinear equations is discussed, and applications in social and biological sciences are described.
