In this note, we give two examples of discrete dynamics (Functions) on intervals C R, the first having a positive Lyapunov exponent at a point but not being sensitive-dependent on initial conditions at that point; and the second being sensitive-dependent on initial conditions at a point but having a negative Lyapunov exponent at that point.
