We characterize the h-stability in variation and asymptotic equilibrium in variation for nonlinear difference systems via n-summable similarity and comparison principle. Furthermore we study the asymptotic equivalence between nonlinear difference systems and their variational difference systems by means of asymptotic equilibria of two systems.
