Discrete dynamic systems 141 19. Show that neither Mathematica nor Maple can solve the following dif- ference equation x t + 1 = x t 1 + x t Use either programme to generate the Frst elements of the series up to t = 10, and hence show that this indicates a solution. 20. A ±ibonacci series takes the form x n = x n 1 + x n 2 x 0 = 1 and x 1 = 1 (i) Use a spreadsheet to generate this series, and hence show that the series is composed of integers. (ii) Solve the recursive equation with a software package and show that all of its factors are irrational numbers but that it takes on integer
