If X e = 0, then from the second equation we have either the extinction equilibrium , ( X e , Y e ) = (0 , 0) or the competitive exclusion equilibrium (with Y winning): ( X e , Y e ) = 0 , b 1 b 2 , where Y e is at carrying capacity .

If X e > 0 and Y e > 0, then we obtain the cooperative equilibrium with neither species going extinct. Note: This last equilibrium could have a negative X e or Y e , depending on the values of the parameters. Joseph M.

Introduction Linear Applications of Systems of 1 st Order DEs Nonlinear Applications of Systems of DEs Model of Glucose and Insulin Control Glucose Tolerance Test Competition Model Nullclines 1 Equilibrium analysis shows there are always the extinction and two competitive exclusion equilibria with the latter going to carrying capacity for one of the species. Provided a 2 b 2 - a 3 b 3 6 = 0, there is another equilibrium, and it satisfies: 1. X e 0 and Y e > 0 or 2. X e > 0 and Y e 0 or 3. X e > 0 and Y e > 0. We concentrate our studies on Case 3, where there exists a positive cooperative equilibrium . Finding equilibia can be done geometrically using nullclines . Nullclines are simply curves where dX dt = 0 and dY dt = 0 . 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.
