**Academic Editor:**Zhengqiu Zhang

#### Abstract

In this paper, we study the global dynamics of three higher-order exponential systems of rational difference equations. This suggested work considerably extends and improves some existing results in the literature.

#### 1. Introduction

Global dynamical properties of difference equations or systems of difference equations involving exponential term have been widely investigated in recent years. For instance, Ozturk et al. [1] have explored the dynamical properties of the following exponential difference equation:where , and are positive real numbers. CÃ¶mert et al. [2] have explored the dynamical properties of the following higher-order exponential difference equation: where , and are positive real numbers. Bozkurt [3] has explored the dynamical properties of the following exponential difference equation: where , and are positive real numbers. In 2009, Ozturk et al. [4] have explored the dynamical properties of the following higher-order exponential difference equation: where , and are positive real numbers. Papaschinopoulos et al. [5] have explored the dynamical properties of the following exponential systems of difference equations: where and are positive real numbers. Khan and Sharif [6] have explored the dynamical properties of the following exponential systems of difference equations: where and are positive real numbers. Khan and Qureshi [7] have explored the dynamical properties of the following exponential system of difference equations: where and are positive real numbers. Psarros et al. [8] have explored the dynamical properties of the following six exponential systems of difference equations: where and are positive real numbers. Mylona et al. [9] have explored the dynamical properties of the following two close-to-cyclic systems of exponential difference equations: where and are positive real numbers. Mylona et al. [10] have explored the dynamical properties of the following systems of difference equations with exponential terms: where and are positive real numbers, and for more other interesting results on difference equations as well as systems of difference equation, we refer the reader to [11â€“13] and the references cited therein. Motivated by the above systemic studies, in this paper we aim to explore the dynamical properties of the following higher-order exponential systems of difference equations, which are natural extension of the work studied by Ozturk et al. [4]: where and are positive real numbers.

The rest of this paper is organized as follows: Section 2 is about the study of boundedness and persistence of systems (11), (12), and (13). This also includes construction of invariant rectangle of these systems. Section 3 is about the uniqueness and existence of fixed point of systems (11), (12), and (13). Section 4 deals with the study of local stability, whereas in Section 5 we study the global dynamics of the unique fixed point of these systems. Section 6 deals with the study of rate of convergence of systems (11), (12), and (13). Brief conclusion is given in Section 7.
