Global stability in a population model with piecewise constant arguments. (English) Zbl 1177.34097

Summary: We investigate the global stability and the boundedness character of the positive solutions of the differential equation

dx dt=r-x(t){1-α·x(t)-β 0 x([t])-β 1 x([t-1])}

where t>0, the parameters r, α, β 0 and β 1 denote positive numbers and [t] denotes the integer part of t[0,). We consider the discrete solution of the logistic differential equation to show the global asymptotic behavior and obtained that the unique positive equilibrium point of the differential equation is a global attractor with a basin that depends on the conditions of the coefficients. Furthermore, we studied the semi-cycle of the positive solutions of the logistic differential equation.
