Hi there,
I am applying a Henon Map to an initial condition of a straight line. By around the 20th to 30th iteration, Mathematica shuts down without any warning. The Kernel still runs but won't allow you to shut it down without rebooting the whole system. THere are only 50 points in the intial line, although some of them get mapped out to infinity basically. But it still crashes even when I tell it to ignore these large values.
The map is:
X(n+1)=X(n)cos(a)-(Y(n)-X^2(n))
Y(n+1)=X(n)sin(a)+(Y(n)-X^2(n))

Do you have any insight? I would have hoped to do at least 500 iterations on maybe 100 points!

Thanx
