Using the Euler backward method, $\displaystyle \frac{y(k + 1)  y(k)}{x_{k + 1}  x_k} =  a y(k), k \in \mathbb{Z}$ Where $T = x_{k + 1}  x_k$ is the sampling period. $y(k + 1) = y(k)(1  Ta)$ The first few values of $k$ gives, $y(1) = y(0)(1  Ta) = (1  Ta)$ $y(2) = y(1)(1  Ta) = (1  Ta)^2$ ${\vdots}$ $y(k + 1) = y(k)(1  Ta)^{k + 1}$ Not sure about this last part though , maybe wait to see what the experts say .
