Global attractivity in a nonlinear second-order difference equation. (English) Zbl 0855.39009
The authors obtain a global attractivity result for the positive equilibrium of a nonlinear second order difference equation \(x_{n+1}=f(x_n,x_{n-1})\), \(n=0,1,2,\dots\).
For related results see the monograph of the present authors: Global behavior of nonlinear difference equations of higher order with applications (1993; Zbl 0787.39001).
