Hi,

I am a new Mathematica user and am trying to figure out how to set up a simple system of simultaneous recursive equations of the general form:

x(t)=x(t-1)+a*y(t-1)+b*z(t-1)
y(t)=y(t-1)+c*x(t-1)+d*z(t-1)
z(t)=z(t-1)+e*y(t-1)+f*x(t-1)

I'd like to set this system up for a series of 200 such equations (which I hope to map over 200-500 periods) and, although I've discovered the syntax for univariate equations, I've been a bit stumped trying to make it work for the multivariate case. (Many of my attempts yield a ''recursion limit'' signal).

I apologize for asking such a simple question, but would greatly appreciate any suggestions --- particularly recommendations on a good way to set up a large system as described above.
