SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations
We present a system of nonlinear differential equations to model the control of energy flow into producing workers or reproducers in an insect colony, using a set of given parameters and a number...

By Holly Gaff
Tick-borne diseases have been on the rise recently, and correspondingly, there is an increased interest in implementing control measures to decrease the risk. Optimal control provides an ideal tool...
2008-Ratneesh_Suri-Optimal harvesting strategies for fisheries-differential equations approach
By Ratneesh Suri
We develop and investigate the harvesting model in both deterministic and stochastic settings. We first employ the Expected Net Present Value approach and determine optimal harvesting policy using...
