Continuous Models for Two Interacting Populations

  • Fred Brauer

Part of the Texts in Applied Mathematics book series (TAM, volume 40)


In this chapter we will consider populations of two interacting species with population sizes x(t) and y(t), respectively, modeled by a system of two first order differential equations:
$$\begin{gathered} x' = F(x,y) \hfill \\ y' = G(x,y) \hfill \\ \end{gathered} $$
