Bifurcation, Chaos and Attractor in the Logistic Competition

This paper deals with a two-dimensional discrete time competition model. The corresponding twodimensional iterative map is represented in terms of its bifurcation diagram in the parameter plane. A number of bifurcation sequences for attractors and their basins are studied.

Keywords: Discrete Logistic Competition Model; local stability; global stability; bifurcation; chaos; chaotic attractor
