Bifurcation diagram of a sin map(plotting it)

  1. Feb 4, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Make a bifurcation diagram for the sin map x{sub t+1} = f(x{sub t}) where f(x) = rsin(pi*x).

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    A bifurcation diagram.... I have read and understood what a bifurcation diagram is, and how it is constructed, but to construct one myself I think I find myself a bit muddled.

    I am having trouble thinking up the actual formulas I'd have to write if I were plotting one of these....

    I understand that this is pretty general question, but how would I set about writing out a bifurcation diagram, mathamatically, since I am needing to put it into a program that will graph it for me?
