Iterating `f(x) = rx(1 - x)`

Henri Picciotto

This applet will let you iterate `f(x)=rx(1-x)` for seeds between 0 and 1.
Use n to iterate.
For context, see Unit 2 in my Infinity course.
Look for values of r that yield:
- an attracting fixed point (zero? non-zero?)
- various periodic orbits
- chaotic orbits
