Abstract

LEACH, P.G.L.  and  ANDRIOPOULOS, K.. Decomposing populations. S. Afr. j. sci. [online]. 2008, vol.104, n.1-2, pp. 27-35. ISSN 0038-2353.

A decomposed system of differential equations is one which can be conflated into a single scalar equation in one dependent variable that contains all of the dependent variables of the original system. We consider the first-order differential equations for four standard models of population growth and give examples chosen from a variety of applications. We also present methods of analysis for integrable systems.
