Abstract/Summary

Abu-Saris and DeVault proposed two open problems about the difference equation x(n+1) = a(n)x(n)/x(n-1), n = 0, 1, 2,..., where a(n) not equal 0 for n = 0, 1, 2..., x(-1) not equal 0, x(0) not equal 0. In this paper we provide solutions to the two open problems. (c) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
