An Early Introduction to Dynamics.
Weiss, Marysia T.
American Mathematical Monthly, v98 n7 p635-41 Aug-Sep 1991
Utilizing composition of elementary functions as prototype of dynamical system, notions of periodic points and their orbits in relation to concept of shift map are used to illustrate concept of continuity. A special case of Sarkovskii's theorem, dealing with period-3 point, is presented with proof relying solely upon Intermediate Value Theorem and concept of continuity. (JJK)
