Thanks for replying. You are right, but I mean the function is y*(1-y) which I want to put it into a loop
My code is
itermax=300;min=itermax-9;% That is we plot from 291:300 i.e. 10 values of x only.
r=0.25;
for rho=0:0.001:4
%x0=0.1;
x(1)=0.1;
for i=1:itermax-1
%t=linspace(i*r,(i+1)*r,itermax)
y(i+1)=x(i);
x(i+1)=x(i)+ rho*int(y(i)*(1-y(i)),i*r,(i+1)*r);
end
%fix(y)
plot(rho*ones(10),x(min:itermax),'b.','linewidth',0.1)
hold on
end
fsize=15;
xlabel('\rho','FontSize',fsize)
ylabel('\itx','FontSize',fsize)
%title('r=0.25, \alpha=1','FontSize',fsize)
hold off
% print(gcf, '-djpeg', '-zbuffer', 'bif.png');

I get the error
Function 'int' is not defined for values of class 'double'.
what does this mean and how to fix it please?
