  9. Two competing populations: simulations with differential equations

    01 Mar 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Hans Rudolf Schneebeli, Claudio Marsan

    Abstract: Suppose two populations are competing with each other. How can they then develop? We offer insights with simulation calculations. In the model is the evolution of the biomass of the two populations described with differential equations. A fundamental building block is the logistic...
