# 1. Introduction

On the previous assignment we generate a chaotic sequence based on skew tent maps, and this time we generate a binary sequence (either ‘0’ or ‘1’). On this occasion we generate the chaotic binary sequence based on the threshold function.

bin = 0 if (x < c)

bin = 1 if (x ≥ c)

When a sequence value ‘x’ is less than critical point ‘c’ the binary value will be ‘0’ and when a sequence value ‘x’ is equal or greater to critical point ‘c’ the binary value will be ‘1’. For example the critical value is set as ‘c’ = 0.4 and chaotic sequence ‘x’ = [0.750000 0.416667 0.972222 0.046296 0.115741 0.289352 0.723380], the binary sequence will be ‘bin’ = [1 1 1 0 0 0 1] as Figure 1.
