Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I saw at the lecture something that called Cobweb diagram/plot and it was given without too much explanation. We were working on recursive sequences(Math major, first semester). The sequence was [tex]\frac{1}{2-\frac{1}{2-...}}[/tex]

I tried to find an explanation to this diagram; why did we choose the diagonal line y=x, and why does it even say something(we could also choose y=2x or y=-3.5x, didn't we?)? I would like to know more why does this diagram even have some meaning.

Thanks,

Thomas
