Abstract: 

We all use "informal induction": if a property holds for the first K integers, then we assume that it holds for all integers. Here, in the context of DIFFERENCE EQUATIONS, we investigate when this sort of inference is valid. Many of the examples come from the old favorites: Fibonacci numbers and Towers of Hanoi.
