Because of its simple structure, many reports on the logistic map have been presented. To implement this map on computers, finite precision is usually used, and therefore rounding is required. There are five major methods to implement rounding, but, to date, no study of rounding applied to the logistic map has been reported. In the present paper, we present experimental results showing that the properties of sequences generated by the logistic map are heavily dependent on the rounding method used and give a theoretical analysis of each method. Then, we describe why using the map with a floor function for rounding generates long aperiodic subsequences.
