We consider unstable scalar deterministic difference equation $x_{n+1}=x_n(1+a_nf(x_n))$, $n\ge 1$, $x_0=a$. We show how this equation can be stabilized by adding the random noise term $\sigma_ng(x_n)\xi_{n+1}$ where $\xi_n$ takes the values +1 or -1 each with probability $1/2$. We also prove a theorem on the almost sure asymptotic stability of the solution of a scalar nonlinear stochastic difference equation with bounded coefficients, and show the connection between the noise…

Given a deterministic difference equation $x_{n+1}= f(x_n)$, we would like to stabilize any point $x^{\ast}\in (0, f(b))$, where $b$ is a unique maximum point of $f$, by introducing proportional

It is shown that when f is locally Lipschitz, a function g can always be found so that the noise perturbation g(X(t)) dB(t) either stabilizes an unstable equilibrium, or destabilizes a stable equilibrium.
