Nonoscillatory solutions of a second-order difference equation of Poincaré type. (English) Zbl 1169.39004

For the difference equation

x n+2 +b n x n+1 +c n x n =0

with real coefficients satisfying b n β<0, c n β 2 /4 as n, it is shown that every non-oscillatory solution has the Poincaré property x n+1 x n β. Note that β is a double zero of the corresponding characteristic equation.
