Research in Progress


"Constuction of Conjugacies" (Writing Results)
The topological  conjugacies between the tent map and many other unimodal maps is known to exist, but in most cases has never been constructed. In this paper the construction of the conjugacy between the tent map and the Farey map will be found.
