Dynamics of a Modified Predator-Prey System to allow for a Functional Response and Time Delay

  • Wei Liu (a1) (a2) and Yaolin Jiang (a1)

A modified predator-prey system described by two differential equations and an algebraic equation is discussed. Formulae for determining the direction of a Hopf bifurcation and the stability of the bifurcating periodic solutions are derived differential-algebraic system theory, bifurcation theory and centre manifold theory. Numerical simulations illustrate the results, which includes quite complex dynamical behaviour.
