Take a look at Nest and NestList. reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/NestList.html Don't forget to check NestWhile,NestWhileList, FixedPoint, FixedPointList. And this tutorial: reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/tutorial/… –  David Carraher Dec 15 '12 at 14:04
    
You can do e.g. Nest[Sin, x, 5], look at this mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/7941/… –  Artes Dec 15 '12 at 14:06
