Visualizing the logistic map with a microcontroller

Pt 371

Visualizing the logistic map with a microcontroller. utku writes –

The logistic map is one of the simplest nonlinear dynamical systems that clearly exhibit the route to chaos. In this paper, we explored the evolution of the logistic map using an open-source microcontroller connected to an array of light emitting diodes (LEDs). We divided the one dimensional interval [0, 1] into ten equal parts, and associated and LED to each segment. Every time an iteration took place a corresponding LED turned on indicating the value returned by the logistic map. By changing some initial conditions of the system, we observed the transition from order to chaos exhibited by the map.

    In the pdf they say they’re using 220 ohm resistor, but in the picture they’re using 1k resistors.
    OK
