The digital spike-phase map is a simple digital dynamical system that can generate various spike-trains. In order to approach systematic analysis of the steady and transient states, four basic feature quantities are presented. Using the quantities, we analyze an example based on the bifurcating neuron with triangular base signal and consider basic four cases of the spike-train dynamics.
