Systems of Difference Equations

Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics book series (UTM)


In the last chapter, we concerned ourselves with linear difference equations, namely, those equations with only one independent and one dependent variable. Since not every situation that we will encounter will be this facile, we must be prepared to deal with systems of more than one dependent variable.
