    • Abstract


      We discuss a perturbative scheme for the determination of the bifurcation rate δ for a specific map, by extending Virendra Singh’s method of evaluating the scaling factor α. The method is applied to a quartic map and the values obtained, α = 1.690781026 and δ = 7.23682924 are in good agreement with the numerically computed values reported in the literature. The perturbative approach is found to be more efficient than other existing methods.
