Applications of KAM theory to population dynamics. Journal Article uri icon



  • Computer simulations have shown that several classes of population models, including the May host-parasitoid model and the Ginzburg-Taneyhill 'maternal-quality' single species population model, exhibit extremely complicated orbit structures. These structures include islands-around-islands, ad infinitum, with the smaller islands containing stable periodic points of higher period. We identify the mechanism that generates this complexity and we discuss some biological implications.
