I am experimenting with the chaos and bifurcation equations. I would like to be able to get numerical lists output by manipulating r in the logistic equation
g[x_] := r*x ( 1 - x) ;
Manipulate[NestList[g, .3, 10], {r, -1, 1}]

However, it symbolically expands rather than giving me a numeric list as I want. I have tried With, Dynamic. But none of them give me the manipulable numeric list that I want? Also, as I use the manipulate slider, even the symbolic list does not get regenerated. I have looked at the Doc and the web and have not found a solution to this. There is probably something real basic that I am missing in getting this to work.
