Abstract: This paper suggests a new computational method for determining closed curves that are invariant under a given mapping. Unlike other authors, we discretize not only the curve but also the mapping itself. This allows us to avoid completely the computational difficulties connected with the numerical solution of large linear systems. The method uses simple recurrence formulas, which greatly reduce the execution times.
