Basic Methods of Solving Linear Difference Equations
In this chapter we will present the basic methods of solving linear difference equations, and primarily with constant coefficients. The discrete Fourier Transforms method as well as the z-transform method will be covered in Chapters 4, 5, and 6, respectively. As this book covers mainly linear difference equations, some nonlinear equations are presented for merely exposing the reader to a very particular class of problems that are amenable to special methods which produce solutions in closed form. Such problems are presented as exercises with ample hints at the end of Section 3.6 exercises in Chapter 3.
