## Abstract:

It is well known that the average position or barycenter of generic orbits for the standard tent map is $0.5$. Periodic orbits are exceptional orbits in the sense that most of them have barycenters different from $0.5$. In this paper we prove that for any positive integer $n$, there exist $n$ distinct periodic orbits for the standard tent map with the same barycenter. We also provide some patterns of periodic orbits with the same barycenter.## References
