C) Use the stair step diagrams to determine the stability of the positive equilibrium value. 12. Consider the Baker's map defined by 2x B(x) = 12x- l for 0 :S x :s ~ for~ < x :S 1 (i) Draw the function B(x) on [0,1]. (ii) Show that x E [0, 1] is an eventually fixed point if and only if it is of the form x = k/2", where k and n are positive integers,5 with O:sk:s2"-l. 13. Find the fixed points and the eventually fixed points of x(n + 1) where f(x) = x 2 • = f(x(n)), 14. 7 which is not in the form of k /2".

Newton's Method of Computing the Square Root of a Positive Number: The equation x 2 =a can be written in the form x = ~ (x + ajx). This form leads to Newton's method x(n + 1) = ~2 [x(n) + _a_] . x(n) (a) Show that this difference equation has two equilibrium points -,j{i and ,j{i. (b) Sketch a stair step diagram for a = 3, x(O) = I, and x(O) = -1 (c) What can you conclude from (b)? 3. C. Pielou [ 1] referred to the following equation as the discrete logistic equation: x(n + 1) = ax(n) 1 + f3x(n) , a> 1, f3 < 0.

Asymptotically stable equilibrium price. 7b. Stable equilibrium price. 19 20 1. 7c. Unstable equilibrium price. An explicit solution of Eq. 3, Problem 9). I2) I-A I-A This explicit solution allows us to restate Cases a and b as follows. , ms < md), the market will then be stable. If the suppliers are more sensitive than the consumers, the market will be unstable. I2) by using a computer algebra program, such as Maple. 3. 1. Contemplate the equation x(n + 1) = f(x(n)), where f(O) = 0. (a) Prove that x(n) = 0 is a solution of the equation.
