Section 1- Variables and Parameters

What is the system we are examining?

This system models a predator-prey situation in which the prey species is subdivided into adult and children populations. The purpose of this system is to investigate the effect of child care on a predator-prey situation. It is assumed that the adults are able to protect the children from the predators and therefore only the adult portion of the species is preyed upon. We will proceed to investigate what happens to such a system over a long period of time.
