Product Overview

In studying the dynamics of populations, whether of animals, plants or cells, it is crucial to allow for intrinsic delays, due to such things as gestation, maturation or transport. This book is concerned with one of the fundamental questions in the analysis of the effect of delays, namely determining whether they effect the stability of steady states. The analysis is presented for one or two such delays treated both as discrete, where an event which occurred at a precise time in the past has an effect now, and distributed, where the delay is averaged over the populations history. Both of these types occur in biological contexts. The method used to tackle these questions is linear stability analysis which leads to an understanding of the local stability. By avoiding global questions, the author has kept the mathematical prerequisites to a minimum, essentially advanced calculus and ordinary differential equations. *Author: MacDonald, N./ Cannings, C./ Hoppensteadt, Frank C. *Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Mathematical Biology *Series Number: 9 *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 248 *Publication Date: 2008/01/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.53 x 5.47 x 0.63 inches
