Iteration of order preserving subhomogeneous maps on a cone. (English) Zbl 1101.37032
Let \(K\) be a polyhedral cone in a finite-dimensional vector space and \(f:K\to K\) be a continuous order-preserving subhomogeneous map. It is shown that each bounded orbit of \(f\) converges to a periodic orbit and, moreover, an upper bound for the periods of all the periodic orbits is found. This upper bound depends only on \(K\). By constructing examples on the standard positive cone on \(\mathbb R^n\), it is shown that the upper bound is asymptotically sharp.
