This is the infix notation for Function logistic = {r, y} \[Function] r y (1 - y) Function[{r, y}, r y (1 - y)] The arrow is entered with \[Function] or <escape> fn <escape> See http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/character/Function.html Bob Hanlon On Thu, Aug 30, 2012 at 4:10 AM, Xiaojian Bai <b.x.jian at gmail.com> wrote: > Hello everyone, > > I was looking for a mathematica code for logistic bifurcation.

It looks like the shorthand "Rule" function or "RuleDelayed", but it can't be. It seems somehow a function is defined. > > Wish someone could help me out. > > Thanks >
