Observation of a feedback mechanism in a population model. (English) Zbl 0952.34054
Here, the author studies the influence of a feedback mechanism of the type $$1-N(\tau(t))/K$$, where $$K$$ is a constant, on fluctuations of a population density $$N(t)$$ around the equilibrium via a constant $$\lambda$$ in the following population model $N'(t)=rN(t)|1-N(\tau(t))/K|^\lambda\text{ sgn}[\ln(K/N(\tau(t))].$
