On Solving Linear Recurrences
Dobbs, David E.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v44 n2 p310-315 2013
A direct method is given for solving first-order linear recurrences with constant coefficients. The limiting value of that solution is studied as "n to infinity." This classroom note could serve as enrichment material for the typical introductory course on discrete mathematics that follows a calculus course.
