Global Dynamics of Some Competitive and Cooperative Discrete Dynamical Systems(2018)
This dissertation investigates the dynamics of some second-order difference equations and systems of difference equations whose defining functions satisfy certain monotonicity properties. In each study we utilize the theory for specific classes of monotone difference equations to establish local and global dynamics.
