ABSTRACT

In this paper we consider the system of piecewise linear difference equations in the title, where the initial conditions x0 and y0 are real numbers. We show that there exists a unique equilibrium solution and exactly two prime period-3 solutions, and that except for the unique equilibrium solution, every solution of the system is eventually one of the two prime period-3 solutions.

Keywords and Phrases: Periodic solution; systems of piecewise linear difference equations 2010 AMS Mathematics Subject Classification: 39A10, 65Q10.

RESUMEN

En este artículo consideramos el sistema de ecuaciones en diferencia lineales por partes indicado en el título, donde las condiciones iniciales x0 e y0 son números reales. Demostramos que existe una única solución de equilibrio y exactamente dos soluciones de período 3-primo, y que exceptuando la soluciún única de equilibrio, toda solucion del sistema es eventualmente una de las dos soluciones de periodo 3-primo.
