AbstractThe role of functional equations to describe the exact local structure of highly bifurcated attractors ofxn+1 =λf(xn) independent of a specificf is formally developed. A hierarchy of universal functionsgr(x) exists, each descriptive of the same local structure but at levels of a cluster of 2r points. The hierarchy obeysgr−1(x)=−αgr(gr(x/α), withg=limr → ∞ gr existing and obeyingg(x) = −αg(g(x/α), an equation whose solution determines bothg andα. Forr asymptoticgr ∼ g − δ−rh* where δ > 1… Expand
