1. For a treatment of stability aspects of more general difference equations, and systems thereof, including nonlinear ones, the reader is referred to the monograph by Wimp . This also contains many applications to special functions. Other relevant texts are Lakshmikantham and Trigiante  and Elaydi . 2. The condition of algebraic equations, although considered already in 1963 by Wilkinson, has been further analyzed by Gautschi . 56), which he himself describes as “the most traumatic experience in [his] career as a numerical analyst,” are related in the essay Wilkinson [1984, Sect.
