The Feigenbaum constant

I had previously blogged about my new series on faith and math, but today seemed like a good day to post another picture in this series.

This piece is about the Feigenbaum constant, another transcendental number. Every chaotic system that corresponds to this description will bifurcate at the same rate. Feigenbaum's constant can be used to predict when chaos will arise in such systems before it ever occurs.
