On the rational recursive sequence \(x_{n+1}=\Big ( A+\sum _{i=0}^{k}\alpha _{i}x_{n-i}\Big ) \Big / \sum _{i=0}^{k}\beta _{i}x_{n-i}\). (English) Zbl 1199.39025
Summary: The main objective of this paper is to study the boundedness character, the periodic character, the convergence and the global stability of positive solutions of the difference equation \[ x_{n+1}=\bigg ( A+\sum _{i=0}^{k}\alpha _{i}x_{n-i}\bigg ) \Big / \sum _{i=0}^{k}\beta _{i}x_{n-i},\;\;n=0,1,2,\dots \] where the coefficients \(A\), \(\alpha _{i}\), \(\beta _{i}\) and the initial conditions \(x_{-k},x_{-k+1},\dots ,x_{-1},x_{0}\) are positive real numbers, while \(k\) is a positive integer number.
