AbstractA large class of recursion relationsxn + 1 = λf(xn) exhibiting infinite bifurcation is shown to possess a rich quantitative structure essentially independent of the recursion function. The functions considered all have a unique differentiable maximum
$$\bar x$$
. With
$$f(\bar x) - f(x) \sim \left| {x - \bar x} \right|^z (for\left| {x - \bar x} \right|$$
sufficiently small),z > 1, the universal details depend only uponz. In particular, the local structure of high-order stability sets… CONTINUE READING
