Multiple periodic solutions of a ratio-dependent predator-prey model. (English) Zbl 1197.34065
Summary: A delayed ratio-dependent predator-prey model with non-monotone functional response is investigated in this paper. Some new and interesting sufficient conditions are obtained for the global existence of multiple positive periodic solutions of the ratio-dependent model. Our method is based on Mawhin’s coincidence degree and some estimation techniques for the a priori bounds of unknown solutions to the equation \(Lx = \lambda \)Nx. An example is represented to illustrate the feasibility of our main result.
Editorial remark: There are doubts about a proper peer-reviewing procedure of this journal. The editor-in-chief has retired, but, according to a statement of the publisher, articles accepted under his guidance are published without additional control.
