Hopf bifurcation for a spatially and age structured population dynamics model

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • This paper is devoted to the study of a spatially and age structured population dynamics model. We study the stability and Hopf bifurcation of the positive equilibrium of the model by using a bifurcation theory in the context of integrated semigroups. This problem is a first example for Hopf bifurcation for a spatially and age/size structured population dynamics model. Bifurcation analysis indicates that Hopf bifurcation occurs at a positive age/size dependent steady state of the model. The results are confirmed by some numerical simulations.
