Asymptotic Integration Of SecondOrder Nonlinear Difference Equations
(2011) In Glasgow Mathematical Journal 53. p.223243 Abstract
 In this work we analyse a nonlinear, secondorder difference equation on an unbounded interval. We present new conditions under which the problem admits a unique solution that is of a particular linear asymptotic form. The results concern the general behaviour of solutions to the initialvalue problem, as well as solutions with a given asymptote. Our methods involve establishing suitable complete metric spaces and an application of Banach's fixedpoint theorem. For the solutions found in our two main theoremsfixed initial data and fixed asymptote, respectivelywe establish exact convergence rates to solutions of the differential equation related to our difference equation. It turns out that for the asymptotic case there is uniform... (More)
 In this work we analyse a nonlinear, secondorder difference equation on an unbounded interval.

Our methods involve establishing suitable complete metric spaces and an application of Banach's fixedpoint theorem. For the solutions found in our two main theoremsfixed initial data and fixed asymptote, respectivelywe establish exact convergence rates to solutions of the differential equation related to our difference equation. It turns out that for the asymptotic case there is uniform convergence for both the solution and its derivative, while in the other case the convergence is somewhat weaker. Two different techniques are utilized, and for each one has to employ adhoc methods for the unbounded interval. Of particular importance is the exact form of the operators and metric spaces formulated in the earlier sections. (Less)
