Impulsive control of a Lotka-Volterra system

Show Summary Details


This paper investigates control problems of a Lotka-Volterra population growth model. We assume that our only means of controlling the population dynamics is via impulses in the N1 population, i.e. adding or removing some members. With this impulsive control, we establish criteria for keeping all the species from going extinct by stabilizing some positive point, which may not be the equilibrium point of the system. Several examples are also worked out.
