Intended as a textbook for courses in difference equations or difference calculus, this book uses techniques of elementary analysis and linear algebra to investigate solutions of difference equations. The text includes sections on stability theory and chaotic behaviour, as well as exercises and applications related to the discrete modelling of economic and biological phenomena. The emphasis is on computations and applications rather than theory.

"The first edition of this book has been the best introduction to difference equations available; the second edition improves this even further." --Martin Bohner, University of Missouri-Rolla "The authors have their finger on the current trends in difference equations. This is a well-written textbook by authors who are known as teachers and expositors." --Johnny Henderson, Auburn University
