Iterating a difference equation
This applet iterates a difference equation (also known as recurrence relation) and displays the resulting sequence both graphically and numerically.

Cobwebbing, linear approximation and stability
This applet shows a linear approximation to a nonlinear difference equation close to an equilibrium, using cobwebbing. It can be used to investigate the accuracy of a linear approximation, or to motivate the linear stability criterion for equilibria of a firstorder difference equation.
