Abstract

We present a global attractivity result for maps generated by systems of autonomous difference equations. It is assumed that the map of the system leaves invariant a box, is monotone in a coordinate-wise sense (but not necessarily monotone with respect to a standard cone), and satisfies certain algebraic condition. It is shown that there exists a unique equilibrium, and that it is a global attractor. As an application, it is shown that a discretized version of the Lotka-Volterra system of differential equations of order k has a global attractor in the positive orthant for certain range of parameters.
