Pictorial Renormalization Group - Demo 1


Run the applet and hit "Step" to perform one iteration of the map, or "Start" for a running iteration. (Set the "Speed" to a convenient value.) For a=2.0 the orbit converges on the fixed point given by the intersection of the diagonal with the curve of the map F(x). For this particular value of a the fixed point is exactly at x=0.5.
