### Nonlinear dispersal equation modeling insect aggregation

I'm a newbie with Mathematica, I know it's a basic answer, but I can't solve the problem on my own. I have the following equation reflecting insect aggregation at low population densities (taken from ...

### Rosenzweig-MacArthur predator-prey model [duplicate]

The predator-prey model is governed by the following system of ode's. \begin{eqnarray} &&\displaystyle{\frac{dx}{dt}=r x\left(1 - \frac{x}{K}\right) - \frac{s y x}{1 + s \tau x}},\\[0.1cm] &...

### Simulating a partial differential equation - reaction-diffusion systems and Turing patterns

I want simulate a reaction-diffusion system described by a PDE called the FitzHugh–Nagumo equation. The system that has been proposed by Alan Turing as a model of animal coat pattern formation and is ...

### Solving the Lotka-McKendrick model with NDSolve

The Lotka-McKendrick model is a demographic model that represents the way a population changes over time due to fertility and mortality. For an age-specific population density $u(a, t)$, and a total ...

### Poincaré section for non-autonomous logistic equation with periodic harvesting

I'd like to plot the Poincaré section based on the problem from here: see exercise 8.1 Given that the standard logistic equation with harvesting function is \dfrac{dx}{dt} = ax(1 - x) - h (1 + \sin{...
