Trying to identify if the system below is recursive or not, I would think a recursive system present output value would depend of a past output and not on a present output value.


$$Y[n] = X[n] - Y[n] $$

a recursive system?

  • $\begingroup$ Well, then there is no feedback; you can't use the current output to compute the current output, right? $\endgroup$ – Matt L. May 31 '17 at 20:05

No, it can be rewritten as $y[n] = x[n]/2$. Basically, the output is the input divided by 2...
