We mainly study the global behavior of the nonlinear difference equation in the title, that is, the global asymptotical stability of zero equilibrium, the existence of unbounded solutions, the existence of period two solutions, the existence of oscillatory solutions, the existence, and asymptotic behavior of non-oscillatory solutions of the equation. Our results extend and generalize the known ones.
