1 Lecture 11 1.1 Logistic equation and population models Let B ( t ) and D ( t ) denote the number of births and deaths that have oc- curred since t = 0 by the time t . The birth rate ° ( t ) = lim ° t ! 0 B ( t t ) ° B ( t ) P ( t t = 1 P ( t ) B 0 ( t ) The death rate ± ( t ) = lim ° t ! 0 D ( t t ) ° D ( t ) P ( t t = 1 P ( t ) D 0 ( t ) ; where P ( t ) is population at time t . So, ° ( t ) and ± ( t ) represent the number of births and death per unit of population and per unit of time. Population change is de°ned by ° P ° [ ° ( t ) ± ± ( t )] ° tP ( t ) . So, P 0 = ( ° ± ± ) P: Notice that ° and ± may not be constants. Assumption (birth rate decreases as population increases): ° ( t ) = ° 0 ± ° 1 P; where ° 0 ; ° 1 = const , ° 0 > 0 ; ° 1 > 0 : ± = ± 0 = const: Then P 0 = ( ° 0 ± ° 1 P ± ± 0 ) P ) P 0 = kP ( M ± P ) ; where k = ° 1 ; M = ° 0 ± ± 0 ° 1 : The ODE P 0 = kP ( M ± P ) is called the logistic equation. Let us °nd solution of the logistic equation. Z dP P ( M ± P ) = k Z dt: 1 P ( M ± P ) = 1 M ° 1 M ± P + 1 P ± : 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
