DESCRIPTION

A bifurcation  diagram  of  the  Henon  system,  which  is
described  by the equation x(t+1) = A - x(t)^2 + B * x(t -
1), is plotted  according  to  the  specified  parameters.
Either  of  the  parameters  (A or B) can be varied in the
plot.

OPTIONS

-width integer
Width of the plot in pixels.

-height integer
Height of the plot in pixels.

-skip integer
Number of initial points to skip.

-abmin double
Smallest value for A (or B).

-abmax double
Largest value for A (or B).

-ab    If TRUE, plot for A; B otherwise.

-A double
Value of the A parameter.

-B double
Value of the B parameter.

-factor double
Multiplicative factor for iterates.

-ymin double
Smallest value for y range.

-ymax double
Largest value for y range.

-box integer
Line width for a box.

-brmin double
Smallest r-value for the box.

-brmax double
Largest r-value for the box.

-bymin double
Smallest value for box y range.

-bymax double
Largest value for box y range.

-inv   Invert all colors?

-mag integer
Magnification factor.

-term string
How to plot points.

BUGS

No sanity checks are performed to make sure  that  any  of
the options make sense.
