Abstract

First order nonlinear difference equations are formulated to model population growth processes characterized by discrete nonoverlapping generations. This is done by discretizing differential equations possessing intrinsic lower bounds to population size. A detailed study of the behavior of their solutions is then performed by proving some theorems holding for a wider class of diffence equations.
