Yes good point! Now consider and and show that the sequence is unbounded, i.e. leaves the disk of radius 2.

The sequence is alternatively defined by the recursive relation...

(1)

The procedure for solving (1) has been described a lot of times, the last in...

http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...ce-176658.html

Following the procedure you find that...

a) if the sequence converges to -1

b) if the sequence converges to 2

c) if the sequence diverges...

Kind regards

Ok, but I think this is only for real , now I want to consider the case that is complex and the imaginary part is non-zero.
