Constructing Easily Iterated Functions with Interesting Properties
Sprows, David J.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v40 n3 p423-427 2009
A number of schools have recently introduced new courses dealing with various aspects of iteration theory or at least have found ways of including topics such as chaos and fractals in existing courses. In this note, we will consider a family of functions whose members are especially well suited to illustrate many of the concepts involved in these topics. The main advantage of these functions is that the student can create and investigate his or her own examples using the approach given in this note. (Contains 4 figures.)
