Positive almost periodic solutions for a delay logarithmic population model. (English) Zbl 1211.34084

Summary: By utilizing the continuation theorem of coincidence degree theory, we shall prove that a delay logarithmic population model has at least one positive almost periodic solution. An example is provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed result.
