The function corresponding to the given difference equation is
f pN q N erp1N qp2N q .
The fixed points are the values of N that satisfy f pN q N . We get the equation

We can represent parameter-dependent behavior with a bifurcation
diagram, as shown below for the logistic map. The horizontal axis
is the value of r , and the vertical axis is the value (or values) that
solutions approach in the long

A difference equation treats systems that change in discrete time
steps (interest paid every month, a task completed every hour). For
many populations, a better model would treat time as continuous.
