A family of mathematical models describing population growth

In this post, I will describe a family of three related mathematical models of population dynamics. Since their development, scientists have used these models to simulate the growth of a wide range of different types of populations including the growth of microbial cells, plant growth and the growth of human populations. Each of these three models are written down in the form of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and are relatively straightforward to simulate from. ... Read more
