Introduction Separation of Variables Modified Malthusian Growth Model Population of U. S. Population of Italy 2 Population Models Modified Malthusian Growth Model 2 Modified Malthusian Growth Model: With P (0) = e C = P 0 , the model can be written P ( t ) = P 0 e a t 2 2 + b t This model has 3 unknowns, P 0 , a , and b We fit the census data in 1790 and 1990 of 3.93 million and 248.7 million Choose the third data value from the census in 1890, where the population is 62.95 million Again take t to be the years after 1790, then P 0 = 3 . 93 Joseph M.

Population of Italy 2 Population Models Modified Malthusian Growth Model 2 Population Model for U. S. The nonautonomous model is P ( t ) = 3 . 93 e a t 2 2 + b t Use the census data in 1890 and 1990 to find a and b The model gives P (100) = 62 . 95 = 3 . 93 e 5000 a +100 b P (200) = 248 . 7 = 3 . 93 e 20000 a +200 b Taking logarithms, we have the linear equations 5000 a + 100 b = ln ( 62 . 95 3 . 93 ) = 2 . 7737 20 , 000 a + 200 b = ln ( 248 . 7 3 . 93 ) = 4 . 1476 Joseph M.

Introduction Separation of Variables Modified Malthusian Growth Model Population of U. S. Population of Italy 2 Population Models Modified Malthusian Growth Model 3 Population Model for U. S. Solving the linear equations 5000 a + 100 b = ln ( 62 . 95 3 . 93 ) = 2 . 7737 20 , 000 a + 200 b = ln ( 248 . 7 3 . 93 ) = 4 . 1476 Multiply the first equation by - 2 and add to the second 10 , 000 a = - 2(2 . 7737) + 4 . 1476 = - 1 . 3998 Thus, a = - 0 . 00013998, which is substituted into the first equation It follows that 100 b = 5000(0 . 00013998) + 2 . 7737 = 3 . 473 Solution is a = - 0 . 00013998 and b = 0 . 03473 Joseph M.

### 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.
