Bifurcating periodic solutions for a class of age-structured predator- prey systems. (English) Zbl 0542.92023
The author uses bifurcation theory to provide sufficient conditions for the existence of periodic solutions corresponding to the steady states of predator-prey systems. The characteristic of the system is that predators prefer to eat very old and very young preys. Such a condition leads to a system of partial differential equations of McKendrick’s type and to an integrodifferential equation of Volterra type.
