  1. 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...

  2. Population Modeling

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

    This paper offers many problems inolving a single population model while introducing several specific models. Both numerical methods and qualitative anlyses are offered.The paper is in German and is entitled, "Populationsmodelle: Eine Einführung in Differentialgleichungen."Hans R....

  4. Population Modeling with M and M's

    30 May 2015 | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    Several activities in which population dynamics can be modeled by tossing M&M’s® candy are presented. Physical activities involving MandM’s can be modeled by difference equations and several population phenomena, including death and immigration, are studied.
