# A discrete-time dynamical system and an evolution algebra of mosquito population

Article

## Abstract

Recently, continuous-time dynamical systems of mosquito populations have been studied. In this paper, we consider a discrete-time dynamical system, generated by an evolution quadratic operator of a mosquito population, and show that this system has two fixed points, which become saddle points under some conditions on the parameters of the system. We construct an evolution algebra, taking its matrix of structural constants equal to the Jacobian of the quadratic operator at a fixed point. Idempotent and absolute nilpotent elements, simplicity properties, and some limit points of the evolution operator corresponding to the evolution algebra are studied. We give some biological interpretations of our results.
