Unformatted text preview: y t + 1 y t = y t Given the discrete dynamic system y t + 1 = f ( y t ), then if f ( y t ) is linear, the system is said to be linear ; if f ( y t ) is nonlinear then the system is said to be nonlinear . Examples (i) y t + 1 = 2 + 3 y t linear (ii) y t + 2 2 y t + 1 3 y t = 5 linear (iii) y t + 1 = 3 . 2 y t (1 y t ) nonlinear (iv) y t + 1 = ry t ln( k / y t ) nonlinear Consider the general discrete dynamic system y t + 1 = f ( t , y t ) (3.3) or example y t + 1 = th ( y t ) 1 Often equation (3.1) and equation (3.2) are each referred to as a difference equation....
