(1) Population is modeled by the following integro-differential equation with distributed delay: (1) N prime ( t ) = rN ( t ) parenleftbigg 1 - 1 K integraldisplay 0 N ( t - u ) p ( u ) du parenrightbigg . where p ( u ) is given by the following function p ( u ) = 1 τ e - u τ which has an average delay integraldisplay 0 up ( u ) du = τ. This function p ( u ) is called weak generic delay kernel . (a) Show that all equilibria of model (1) are N * 1 = 0 and N * 2 = K . (b) Show that the equation linearized about N * 2 = K ( N ( t ) = N * 2 + v ( t )) is given by v prime ( t ) = - r integraldisplay 0 v ( t - u ) p ( u ) du.

### 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.
