Econ 840 Exercise for March 26 De Jong, Spring 2008 Answer the question below for Wednesday’s class. The questions below are about difference equations, and about a deterministic sequence y t . Below, i denotes - 1. 1. Consider the equation y t = 0 . 25 y t - 1 . Solve y t as a function of t and y 0 . 2. Consider the equation y t = 0 . 25 y t - 1 + 2. If y t converges to y as t goes to infinity, then what value must y be? Verify that y t = y is a solution to the above difference

Consider next the difference equation y t = 0 . 5 iy t-1 . Solve this difference equation and show that y t converges to zero as t → ∞ . 5. Finally, consider the difference equation y t = iy t-1 . Show that y t does not converge as t → ∞ . 1...
