Logistic Bifurcation

These images are based on what is known as a bifurcation diagram, which shows the onset of chaotic behavior in a non-linear dynamical equation. The equation that governs these images is known as the logistic map, one of the most simple equations that can lead to chaos. The bifurcation diagram here is repeated in different orientations and in different colors to give the effect you see below.
