First of all, my sincere wishes of an Happy Christmas, full of joy, happiness and such feelings that make our life worthfull!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm studying and researching about Chaos Theory, and currently I'm examining the following iterative equation:

Xn+1 = c*(Xn-(Xn^3)/3)

I've already managed to give an approximation to which c values does the function get in chaos. But to have further details on this problem, i do have to study the equation for each different value of c parameter!

Which is the best way, analitically and graphically, to study and return the "exact" values of c that make the equation: converge, oscilate between to values or enter chaos?

Best Regards and Merry Christmas! :-)
