Stability and Hopf bifurcation analysis for a Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model with two delays

Changjin Xu, Maoxin Liao, Xiaofei He (2011)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science


In this paper, a two-species Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model with two delays is considered. By analyzing the associated characteristic transcendental equation, the linear stability of the positive equilibrium is investigated and Hopf bifurcation is demonstrated. Some explicit formulae for determining the stability and direction of Hopf bifurcation periodic solutions bifurcating from Hopf bifurcations are obtained by using normal form theory and center manifold theory. Some numerical...

Hopf bifurcation analysis of some hyperchaotic systems with time-delay controllers

Lan Zhang, Cheng Jian Zhang (2008)



A four-dimensional hyperchaotic Lü system with multiple time-delay controllers is considered in this paper. Based on the theory of Hopf bifurcation in delay system, we obtain a simple relationship between the parameters when the system has a periodic solution. Numerical simulations show that the assumption is a rational condition, choosing parameter in the determined region can control hyperchaotic Lü system well, the chaotic state is transformed to the periodic orbit. Finally, we consider...

Dynamical behavior of Volterra model with mutual interference concerning IPM

Yujuan Zhang, Bing Liu, Lansun Chen (2010)

ESAIM: Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis


A Volterra model with mutual interference concerning integrated pest management is proposed and analyzed. By using Floquet theorem and small amplitude perturbation method and comparison theorem, we show the existence of a globally asymptotically stable pest-eradication periodic solution. Further, we prove that when the stability of pest-eradication periodic solution is lost, the system is permanent and there exists a locally stable positive periodic solution which arises from the pest-eradication...
