Let Cn be the set of n complex vectors endowed with a norm Cn. Let A,B be two complex n×n matrices and τ a positive integer. In the present paper we consider the nonlinear difference equation with delay of the type uk+1=Auk+Bukτ+Fk(uk,ukτ),k=0,1,2,, where Fk:Cn×CnCn satisfies the condition Fk(x,y)CnpxCn+qyCn,k=0,1,2,, where p and q are positive constants. In this paper, absolute stability conditions for this equation are established.
