About this book

As the world's population exceeds the six billion mark, questions of population explosion, of how many people the earth can support and under which conditions, become pressing. The goal of this book is to search for a balance between simple and analyzable models and unsolveable models which are capable of addressing important questions such as these.


Contents

Part I: Simple Single-Species Models. 1. Continuous population models. 2. Discrete population models. 3. Continuous single-species population models with delay.- Part II: Models for Interacting Species. 4. Introduction and mathematical preliminaries. 5. Continuous models for two interacting populations. 6. Harvesting in two-species population models. 7. Multi-species population models.- Part III: Structured Population Models. 8. Models for population with age structure. 9. Models for populations with spatial distribution.
