Recurrence Relation

Recurrence Relations : Stirling Numbers

A Stirling number Snk is definedc as the number of ways of partitioning the set of positive numbers (1,2,3,....n) into k non empty subsets. We can show that by considering if the singleton subset (n) is a partition or not that Snk = Sn-1, k-1 + kSn-1,k Another recurrence relation comes from considering the number of partit

Recurrence Relations : Stirling Numbers

A stirling number Snk is defined as the number of ways to partition the set of positive numbers (1,2,3....n) into k non empty subsets. By considering whether or not the singleton subset (n) is included in a partition or not show: Snk = Sn-1,k-1 - kSn-1,k

Recurrence Relations : Stirling Number

A Stirling Number Snk is defined as the number of ways of partitioning the set of positive numbers (1,2,3,4....n) into k non empty subsets. Show S2n,2 = 2n + (2n 2) + (2n 3) + ...... (2n n-1) + 1/2 (2n n) Everything in brackets is transposed.

Stability of a 2D recursive relation near a fixed point

Observe that (0,0) is a fixed point of the system: x_(n+1) = u*x_n - y_n + (y_n)^2 y_(n+1) = x_n + (x_n)^4 + y_n Regardless of the choice of parameter u. Determine the range of u values for which this fixed point is stable.
