I'm going through "The Chaos Cookbook" right now, a fairly old book on chaos programming. A bit too old I'm afraid, all the programs are written in Pascal and Basic. I had been using Excel (well, Open Office Calc) to do the iterations and graphing, but I feel that the size of the programs are out growing the scope of Excel. I wrote a C++ program to create the data points for a Martin diagram of the Logistics equation (the data is here http://www.box.net/shared/kr2cz5es0g if you care). My question is how can I get mathematica to turn these data points into a graph, and/or is there perhaps better software I should be using for something like this (The main advantage is I get mathematica for free from my university). It might be worth adding I can, pretty much, change the format of the data from that file at will if someone thinks a different format would work better. Thanks for your help!
