620-341 Assignment 2

Due: Tuesday April 29 @ 5pm.

The assignment

Consists of two questions, each worth 5 marks (making a total of 10).
  1. The first requires numerical work and you will need the "bifurcation diagrams" applet that can be found here. You will need to adjust the "discard first" and "show next" options - if you set them to around 100,000 then you should get sufficient accuracy. This may make the plotting quite slow, but you need to get as many decimal places of accuracy as you can - 6 or 7!!!
  2. The second question requires analytic work.

To set your work out neatly. I am quite happy to deduct up to 50% for messy assignments.
