Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the equilibrium points, stability of two equilibrium points, convergences of negative equilibrium point, periodic solutions, and existence of bounded or unbounded solutions of a system of nonlinear difference equations
$$x_{n+1}=x_{n-1}y_{n}-1,y_{n+1}=y_{n-1}x_{n}-1$$
$n=0,1,...$, where the initial values are real numbers. Additionally we present some numerical examples to verify our theoretical results.
