Re: oh god help me

It is a whole lot of jargon, authors love that stuff. Are you looking to understand how to solve one?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

hi Hannibal lecter

what can I do if I read something and didn't understand about it

Make up a simple example.

ie. Choose a quadratic with two easy to find but different roots.  Then construct the sequence a1, a2, a3 using

and check out the recurrence relation.
