An optimal control problem for a tri-trophic chain system with diffusion
An optimal control problem is studied for a nonlinear reaction-diffusion system that describes the behavior of a trophic chain composed by a predator, a pest and a plant species. A pesticide is introduced in the ecosystem. It is regarded as a control variable. The purpose is to minimize the pest density and to maximize the plant density.
