Discrete dynamic systems 119 then y t + 1 = (1 + a ) y t by t y t + 1 Solving we obtain y t + 1 = (1 + a ) y t 1 + by t This can be transformed by dividing both sides by y t + 1 y t 1 y t = 1 y t + 1 1 + a 1 + by t i.e. 1 y t + 1 = 1 + by t (1 + a ) y t = 1 (1 + a ) 1 y t + b 1 + a Let x t = 1 / y t , then x t + 1 = ± 1 1 + a ² x t + b 1 + a In equilibrium x t + 1 = x t = ... = x , hence x = ± 1 1 + a ² x + b 1 + a Solving for x we obtain the Fxed point x = b a Subtracting the equilibrium equation from the recursive equation we obtain x t + 1 x = 1 1 + a ( x t x ) which has the general solution x t x =
