For a general family of dynamic models, x(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{k+1}=f(x_{k}), oscillation can occur; for example, the function x_{k+1}=x_{n}^{2}-1 experiences oscillation under the starting value 0:

(x_{2}=x_{1}^{2}-1=x_{2}=0^{2}-1→x_{2}=-1→x_{3}=x_{2}^{2}-1=x_{3}=-1^{2}-1→x_{3}=0)

This type of oscillation must be capable of detection before actually pluggin in the numbers. How can you figure out that a dynamic model will oscillate in such a way?
