<abstract><p>In this paper, a novel one dimensional chaotic map $ K(x) = \frac{\mu x(1\, -x)}{1+ x} $, $ x\in [0, 1], \mu > 0 $ is proposed. Some dynamical properties including fixed points, attracting points, repelling points, stability and chaotic behavior of this map are analyzed. To prove the main result, various dynamical techniques like cobweb representation, bifurcation diagrams, maximal Lyapunov exponent, and time series analysis are adopted. Further, the entropy and probability distribution of this newly introduced map are computed which are compared with traditional one-dimensional chaotic logistic map. Moreover, with the help of bifurcation diagrams, we prove that the range of stability and chaos of this map is larger than that of existing one dimensional logistic map. Therefore, this map might be used to achieve better results in all the fields where logistic map has been used so far.</p></abstract>
