Hi, is the a difference between Linear Recurrence Equation and Linear equations???

or they are the same..?

and what is the Linear Recurrence Equation ?

and the important thing I need to know about is : How do we know if it is Linear Recurrence Equation or non-linear?

That is a lot of material.

These are linear equations: y = 2x + 5, 3x + 4y + 10 z = 0

http://www.mathsisfun.com/algebra/linear-equations.html

These are non linear equations 5xy + 34 = 0. x^3 + 2x^2 - 4xy - 1 = 0.

These are some linear recurrence equations.

These are some non linear recurrence equations
