%logistic.m - this MATLAB file solves the
%discrete logistic equation x(i+1)=r*x(i)*(1-x(i))
%and the users is prompted to read in the value
% of r to use as well as the initial value
% x0 which must be in (0,1)
% and the time interval over which to run the
% simulation.
!c:
s=1;
while s>0;
r=input('input growth rate r: ')
x0=input('input initial population x0: ')
n=input('end of time interval b: ')
x=zeros(n+1,1);
t=zeros(n+1,1);
x(1)=x0;
for i=1:n
t(i)=i-1;
x(i+1)=r*x(i)*(1-x(i));
end
t(n+1)=n;

s=input('Do you want to stop - if so enter 0')
