Math 464, Worksheet 7 Use population model from Graded Assignment 1: Birth rate is b = 0 . 05 per day per animal. Death rate is d = N 5000 per day per animal. h = 3 animals per day are harvested. b N d h 1. Write the diFerence equation for N and ±nd all equilibrium solutions. 2. Repeat the steps of Worksheet 6, using initial N 0 = 250. 3. Generate additional columns for the expected population and each equilibrium solution. 4. Graph the random population, the expected population, and all equilibria all on one graph.

Unformatted text preview: 5. Working with a group (or at least a partner), generate 100 random trials, each for one full year of population. Count the number of trials that end in extinction. 6. Repeat the entire worksheet for diFerent values of h . I am particularly interested in h = 0 and h = 3 . 125. 7. Suppose that you get paid $1 for each animal you harvest during the year. But, if the population goes extinct you pay a ne of $100,000. What value of h would you chose, and why? 1...
