## Applications of Systems of Differential Equations## Predator-Prey Problems
You should have gotten the following plot:
Now closely compare the two graphs. Remembering that red=rabbits, green=foxes, what do
you notice about the Do you notice the relative time lag between the extrema of the rabbits compared to the extrema of the foxes? Ask yourself, does this time lag make sense in a real world context? Once you've carefully considered this question, we can move on to discuss another approach to seeing the relationship between the populations. |
