For a linear equation, every solution is periodic with period p ≥ 2, if and only if every root of the characteristic equation is a pth root of unity. 1 Assume that f ∈ C 1 [(0, ∞) × (0, ∞), (0, ∞)] is such that every positive solution of the equation xn+1 = f (xn , xn−1 ), n = 0, 1, . . 37) is periodic with period p ≥ 2.

We will assume that xN −1 < x ≤ xN . All other cases are similar and will be omitted. Then by using the monotonic character of f (x, y) we have xN +1 = f (xN , xN −1 ) < f (x, x) = x and xN +2 = f (xN +1 , xN ) > f (x, x) = x. Thus xN +1 < x < xN +2 26 Chapter 1. Preliminary Results and the proof follows by induction. ✷ The next result applies when the function f is decreasing in both arguments. 2 Assume that f ∈ C[(0, ∞) × (0, ∞), (0, ∞)] and that f (x, y) is decreasing in both arguments. 33).
