#### Evolution

Function: evolution (<F>, <y0>, <n>, ..., options, ...); Draws <n+1> points in a two-dimensional graph, where the horizontal coordinates of the points are the integers 0, 1, 2, ..., <n>, and the vertical coordinates are the corresponding values <y(n)> of the sequence defined by the recurrence relation y(n+1) = F(y(n))

With initial value <y(0)> equal to <y0>. <F> must be an expression that depends only on one variable (in the example, it depend on <y>, but any other variable can be used), <y0> must be a real number and <n> must be a positive integer.

There are also some inexact matches for `evolution`. Try `?? evolution` to see them.
