Difference Equation or discrete dynamical system especially is a very fascinating subject because we can derive many complex behavior based on simple formulation. It is easy to understand and has many applications. This tutorial is to introduce to a simple difference equation (with emphasize to the affine dynamical system), especially the three important subjects: Solution of the difference equation and its behavior, equilibrium or critical value and stability.
