Strange Attractor

I just added a new math project, "The Henon Strange Attractor", to the house projects. This is the 6th mathematics project and like most of them it is a short program of a few dozen lines.

The Henon map is a simple two dimensional discrete dynamical system that leads to fascinating mathematics. There is a pretty good starting point at Wikipedia for anyone looking to learn more about chaos theory and the Henon map.
