Logistic Map

The logistic map (and its continuous counterpart, the logistic equation) are well studied models in population biology. Its formula is very simple:

x(n+1) = mu * x(n) * (1 - x(n))

where x is the relative size of the population (ie. it varies between 0 and 1) and mu is the growth coefficient.
