On the global behavior of higher order recursive sequences. (English) Zbl 1127.39016
Summary: Our basic purpose in this paper is to establish some conditions for the global attractivity and convergence of the $$k$$th-order recursive sequence $x_n=f(x_{n-1},x_{n-2},\dots,x_{n-k}),\;n=1,2,3,\dots$ We will show that if $$f$$ is a real-valued function with a convex basin $$\Omega$$ in $$R^k$$, which is differentiable with bounded differential, then $$f$$ has an equilibrium point. Our final comments are about informative examples.
