The dynamics of a class of one-dimensional polynomial maps are studied, and interesting dynamics are observed under certain conditions: the existence of periodic points with even periods except for one fixed point; the coexistence of two attractors, an attracting fixed point and a hidden attractor; the existence of a double period-doubling bifurcation, which is different from the classical period-doubling bifurcation of the Logistic map; the existence of Li-Yorke chaos. Furthermore, based on this one-dimensional map, the corresponding generalized Hénon map is investigated, and some interesting dynamics are found for certain parameter values: the coexistence of an attracting fixed point and a hidden attractor; the existence of Smale horseshoe for a subshift of finite type and also Li-Yorke chaos.
