Recurrence Relations Chapter 7 p (7.2 Solving Recurrence Relations) ovember 2, 2009 November 2, 2009 Recurrence Relations • A recurrence relation for the sequence a 0 , a 1 , … is an quation that relates a certain of its predecessors equation that relates a n to certain of its predecessors a 0 , a 1 , …, a n-1 . • Initial conditions for the sequence a , a , … are q 0 , 1 , explicitly given values for a finite number of the terms of the sequence. • To solve a recurrence relation = to find an explicit formula for the general term a n – By applying iteration t hd l id l i h lt i – Method applied linear homogenous recurrence relations with constant coefficients – Using generating functions [email protected] CS204 Discrete Math (Fall 2009) 2 Example 7.1.3 • Invest $1000 at 12 percent interest compounded annually. Let A n : amount at the end of n years.
