Generalized delayed logistic map suitable for pseudo-random number generation
This paper presents the generalization of a delayed version of the logistic map. The effect of the added two general parameters is studied, which offers the option of having three different maps. The dynamic behavior of the vertical, zooming and the general map is analyzed. The study of the fixed points, stability ranges and bifurcation diagram of the delayed logistic map at hand is detailed in this work. The flow of the system behavior from stability to chaos is also presented with its transient response as well as its phase plane portraits. Moreover, using the general parameters, the option of designing any specific map is validated by some design examples, which makes it more optimal for any specific applications. The added general parameters offer increased randomness with controllability of the map design, making it more suitable for pseudo-random sequence generators which are used in image encryption algorithms and in secure communication transfer. © 2015 IEEE.
