On the Behavior of the Positive Solutions of the System of Two Higher-Order Rational Difference Equations

Abstract

We study the convergence of the positive solutions of the system of the following two difference equations:

where K is a positive integer, the parameters A,B, α, β  and the initial conditions are positive real numbers. Our results generalize well known results in [1,2].
