Applications of recurrence relation

by Chuang, Ching-hui

Abstract (Summary)
Sequences often occur in many branches of applied mathematics. Recurrence relation is a powerful tool to characterize and study sequences. Some commonly used methods for solving recurrence relations will be investigated. Many examples with applications in algorithm, combination, algebra, analysis, probability, etc, will be discussed. Finally, some well-known contest problems related to recurrence relations will be addressed.
