We prove that the system of difference equations , , , (we regard that ) is permanent, provided that , , , , , are nondecreasing functions bounded from below and such that there are
and such that , , for all . This result considerably extends the results existing in the literature. The above system is an extension of a two-dimensional discrete neural network system.
