## Applications of Differential Equations## Population Dynamics
## The Malthusian ModelThis model made some rather wild assumptions about how populations grow, so we don't expect it to be the greatest predictor of what really happens in a population over an extended time period. Nevertheless, let's investigate it. The initial value problem is as follows:
where Now it's actually pretty easy to solve this initial value problem by hand, but
let's have You've probably noticed that I'm not typing out every command for you
anymore. That's because Let's go see what you should have gotten... |
