I can't even find an explicit expression for [itex]x_{n}[/itex] as a function of the previous terms, let alone as a function of [itex]n[/itex]. I've dealt with linear recurrences before, but how would I go about solving a nonlinear recurrence like this? Is it even possible to find a closed-form expression using elementary functions? If an exact solution is impossible, is there some way to get a numerical approximation?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You in Advance.
