Unformatted text preview: d , r and . Group all terms by variable . 2. Simplify the model by assuming constant population N . Note that this allows you to eliminate variables as follows: (a) Since births must match deaths, d = b . (b) Since total population is constant, R = N-S-I . You should end up with two equations in the variables S and I . You also have a new parameter, N . Group by variable . 1 3. Assume constant values b = 0 . 02, r = 0 . 01, = 0 . 1 and N = 100. Perform the usual analysis. That is: (a) Think about what happens if S = 0. Sketch solutions if you can. (b) Think about what happens if I = 0. Sketch solutions if you can. (c) Find all equilibria. (d) For each equilibrium, nd eigenvalues, nd eigenvectors, and sketch solutions. 2...
