Abstract An infinite sequence of finite or denumerable limit sets is found for a class of many-to-one transformations of the unit interval into itself. Examples of four different types are studied in some detail; tables of numerical results are included. The limit sets are characterized by certain patterns; an algorithm for their generation is described and established. The structure and order of occurrence of these patterns is universal for the class.
