  • Abstract

    In this paper, we study the asymptotic behavior of solutions of the following first order forced delay difference equation \begin{equation*}\quad \quad \quad \quad \Delta x(n)+p(n)f(x(n-\tau))+r(n)=0,\quad n\geq 0. \quad \quad \quad \quad  (*)\end{equation*} Some sufficient conditions for every solution of (*) to tend to zero are established.
