Unregulated growth of a structured population: Population with stage or age structure Matrix projection model: n (t): vector of population sizes per class A : population projection matrix Eigenvectors and eigenvalues Vector decomposition along eigenvectors: Equation: n (t+1) = A . n (t) Solution: n (t) = A t n (0) e e e V AV λ = n (0) = c 1 V 1 + c 2 V 2 + c 3 V 3 +… Solution: n (t) = c 1 λ 1 t V 1 + c 2 λ 2 t V 2 + c 3 λ 3 t V 3 +…
