Does there exists a brach of mathematics, if exists, perhaps in computational mathematics, researches the properties of multiple nesting functions where every nested function is somewhat simple, such as piecewise linear function?

Nesting. Like $f(g(h(x)))$ where $f, g, h$ are functions? This is called function composition. The study of the iterations of a given function $f$ is called iterated functions. This overlaps with the study of fractals. For example the famous Mandelbrot set arises from the successive iterations of a particular function in the complex plane.
