Galla Example

Andrew E Long
This is an introductory example from Olinick's book An Introduction to Mathematical Models in the Social and Life Sciences. ​

Galla age distribution model.

Thanks Mike! Interesting examples, as always....

Logistic Growth

Andrew E Long
This simple model demonstrates logistic growth.The differential equation looks like

y'(t)=by(t)(1-y(t)/K)

where K is the carrying capacity of the quantity y.

y'(t)=by(t) - b/K*y(t)^2

so the loss term is of the form b/K.
