What is the difference between a contour plot and a bifurcation plot?

  1. Apr 15, 2014 #1
    On Wolfram Alpha it will offend give you a contour plot, and it has similarities to a bifurcation plot with respect to a variable and a parameter.

    What is the difference between a contour plot and a bifurcation diagram?

    I'm sorry you are not generating any responses at the moment. Is there any additional information you can share with us? Any new findings?

    I'm not familiar with Wolfram Alpha but the two plots are very different things. The contour plot is a set of level curves of constant function value, like a topographical map. A bifurcation diagram plots the location of fixed points in the independent variable as a function of some parameter in the equation.
