# Dynamically consistent discrete-time Lotka-Volterra competition models

• Sufficient conditions are given such that the discrete time competition models constructed by applying nonstandard finite difference (NSFD) schemes for the Lotka-Volterra competition models are dynamically consistent. The derived discrete models preserve the positivity of solutions, local stability conditions, boundedness, and the monotonicity of the continuous Lotka-Volterra system. In other words, we are able to construct discrete-time competition models that behave just like the continuous-time Lotka-Volterra competition models.
