Epidermiological approach to predator-prey interaction

Mustapha, Faridah and Grinfeld, Michael (2002) Epidermiological approach to predator-prey interaction. Matematika, 18 (1). pp. 1-8. ISSN 0127-8274



An epidemiological approach is used to model predator-prey interaction. The concept is borrowed from SIS model of disease transmission. In the predator-prey interaction, predation is viewed as a "disease" of the predator transmitted by the prey. In this approach, the predator population is partitioned into hungry and satisfied subpopulation. The stability of the steady states from the equations is analyzed.
