On the recursive sequence \(x_{n+1}={\alpha+\beta x_ n+\gamma x_{n-1}\over A+Bx_ n+Cx_{n-1}}\). (English) Zbl 0855.39006
The author presents five open problems and three conjectures about the recursive sequence in the title. We give two examples: Conjecture 3.3. Assume that \(B\in[0,\infty)\) and \(\alpha,\beta, A, C\in (0,\infty)\). Then the positive equilibrium of the equation in the title (with \(\gamma = 0)\) is globally asymptotically stable. Open problem 3.3. Obtain necessary and sufficient conditions in terms of \(\alpha,\beta,\gamma, A, B, C\), for every positive solution of the equation in the title to be bounded.
