I don't have MATLAB installed on this computer, but from the above my guess is to move the statements:
% set the figure details figure(1) xlabel('t') ylabel('x') %plot(time,x_next,'*') hold on
before your outer loop and see what happens. I suspect the statement "figure(1) is executed twice and that is why your diagram is divided into 2 parts (as you state). But this is just a guess!
