a,b |
Parameters of the map functions |

Compose |
Number of times map function is composed or iterated each step |

Transient |
Number of iterations to eliminate transients before plotting |

Delta-x |
Timeseries: small difference in two initial conditions |

Start-x |
Initial value for x |

Points |
Spectrum: no of points used for FFT |

Window |
Spectrum: type of window used in calculating power spectrum |

Bins |
Histogram: number of subdivisions of x range |

Points |
Spectrum: number of data points for each transform |

Points |
Bifurcation, Lyapunov: number of subdivisions of a range |

Window |
Spectrum: type of window used in calculating power spectrum |

a_min, a_max |
Bifurcation, Lyapunov: range of a |

- If you change a text entry, you
**must**hit*Enter*or*Return*on the keyboard or*Restart*within the applet for the change to take effect. - The slider changes the speed of the iteration. Setting the speed too high may make the applet unresponsive or crash, depending on the Java implementation. A slow speed is appropriate to watch the iterations. However you will usually want to increase the speed for the other diagnostics.
*Show Time:*switches continuous update of number of iterations. Some Java implementations have an annoying screen flash if set to "Yes".- On most of the plots a mouse click within a
*running*plot will display the coordinate values of the point. For the "*Timeseries*" a mouse click will start a new iteration from that point. Dragging the mouse on a*stopped*plot will reset the scale to the outlined region, allowing finer detail to be seen. Hitting*Reset*or clicking the mouse outside a stopped plot will restore the default range.
