A computational method for solution of the prey and predator problem. (English) Zbl 1060.65612

Summary: A mathematical model of the problem of prey and predator being presented and Adomian decomposition method is employed to compute an approximation to the solution of the system of nonlinear Volterra differential equations governing on the problem. Some plots for the population of the prey and predator versus time are presented to illustrate the solution.
