Abstract

Motivated by an open problem in the literature “Dynamics of Second Order Rational Difference Equations with Open Problems and Conjecture”, we introduce a difference equation system:

x_{n+1}={y_{n-2}+y_{n-3}}/x_{n}, y_{n+1}={x_{n-2}+x_{n-3}}/y_{n} , n=o, 1 ...* Where x_{i, }y_{i }∈（0, ∞）， i=-3, -2, -1, 0.

We try to find out some conditions such that the solution of system converges to periodic solution. This model can be applied to the two species competition and population biology.
