We study non-autonomous rational difference equations. Under the assumption of a periodic non-autonomous parameter, we show that a well known trichotomy result in the autonomous case is preserved in a certain sense which is made precise in the body of the text. In addition we discuss some questions regarding whether periodicity preserves or destroys boundedness.

A class of nonautonomous discrete logistic single-species systems with time-varying pure-delays and feedback control is studied. By introducing a new research method, almost sufficient and necessary conditions for the permanence and extinction of species are obtained. Particularly, when the system degenerates into a periodic system, sufficient and necessary conditions on the permanence and extinction of species are obtained. Moreover, a very important fact is found in our results, that is, the feedback...

This paper deals with basic stability properties of a two-term linear autonomous fractional difference system involving the Riemann-Liouville difference. In particular, we focus on the case when eigenvalues of the system matrix lie on a boundary curve separating asymptotic stability and unstability regions. This issue was posed as an open problem in the paper J. Čermák, T. Kisela, and L. Nechvátal (2013). Thus, the paper completes the stability analysis of the corresponding fractional difference...

We study the asymptotics of first-order nonlinear difference equations. In particular we present an asymptotic functional equation for potential asymptotic behaviour, and a theorem stating sufficient conditions for the existence of an actual solution with such asymptotic behaviour.

We develop a stage-structured model that describes the dynamics of two competing species each of which have sexual and clonal reproduction. This is typical of many plants including irises. We first analyze the dynamical behavior of a single species model. We show that when the inherent net reproductive number is smaller than one then the population will go to extinction and if it is larger than one then an interior equilibrium exists and it is globally asymptotically stable. Then we analyze...

In this paper, a discrete version of continuous non-autonomous predator-prey model with infected prey is investigated. By using Gaines and Mawhin's continuation theorem of coincidence degree theory and the method of Lyapunov function, some sufficient conditions for the existence and global asymptotical stability of positive periodic solution of difference equations in consideration are established. An example shows the feasibility of the main results.
