I have a recursive function and I seem to be having a problem deducing a general solution for it:
The initial conditions are
Some of the values are as followed:
My initial thought was that it was a periodic function. But I am as yet unable to begin to formulate a general solution,
Can anyone help. Thank you.
Thank you running_gag for your input. I believe I may have the embroyo of a general solution, as followed: (do you think i'm on the right track)
But due to the fact that it is periodic do you think I should be looking more to trigonometric functions for a more elegant solution i.e the sine and cosine functions. Any input or ideas would be appreciated. Thank you
