i have 2 questions(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.what does a, b, m, n represent in the following Lotka-Volterra model:

[tex]\frac{dx}{dt} = (a - by)x[/tex]

[tex]\frac{dy}{dt} = (-m + nx)y[/tex]

here,

x(t) = number of krills at time t

y(t) = number of whales at time t

2.what does a, b represent in the following Lanchaster combat model:

[tex]\frac{dx}{dt} = -ay[/tex]

[tex]\frac{dy}{dt} = -bx[/tex]

here,

x(t) = the number of tanks in operation in time t

y(t) = the number of anti-tanks in operation in time t
