Thanks a lot for replying.

I have tried the following

% define the vector of colors, to plot the dat aof reach value of r in
% different color
color_vec = ['b'];
for rho = 0: 0.001:5
% do a loop of values of r
for j = 1 : size(r_vec,2)
% define delay
r = r_vec(j);
% define coefficient rho
%rho = 0.5;
% define the number of deiscrete times in interval [k*r, (k+1)*r]
n = 50;
% define the nimber of iterations k = 1,.....,Nit
Nit = 300;
% define the initial vector which is a vector of size n
x0 = 0.3*ones(1,n);
% define vectors x_next and x_previous
x_next = zeros(1,n); %x_(n+1)
x_previous = zeros(1,n); %x_n

time = zeros(1,n);

% initialize x_previous
x_previous = x0;
time = zeros(1,n);
%x_next = x_previous;
time = linspace(0,r,n);

hold on
for i = 1:Nit
time = linspace(i*r,(i+1)*r,Nit);
x_next = x_previous+ cumtrapz(y_next);
x_previous = x_next;
plot(rho,x_next(1),'.', 'Color', char(color_vec(j)))

When I execute the results, I found out that x and y go to starting from the second value for each? What's wrong in my code?
Moreover, I want to integrate ''y'' from nr to time; how can I do this using cumtrapz?

Thanks a lot in advance.
