A class of models is introduced describing the evolution of population species whose carrying capacities are functionals of these populations. The functional dependence of the carrying capacities reflects the fact that the correlations between populations can be realized not merely through direct interactions, as in the usual predator-prey Lotka-Volterra model, but also through the influence of species on the carrying capacities of each other. This includes the self-influence of each kind of… 
Population Dynamics with Nonlinear Delayed Carrying Capacity
This work generalizes an exhaustive classification of the logistic equation where the carrying capacity is linearly dependent on the population with a time delay to the case of a nonlinear delayed carrying capacity, which changes the behavior of solutions to the evolution equation.
Utility Rate Equations of Group Population Dynamics in Biological and Social Systems
It is found that, in a self-organized society, neither defectors nor regulators can overpass the maximal fractions of about each and, in agreement with the data for bee and ant colonies, the classification of societies by their distance from equilibrium is proposed.
New Approach to Modeling Symbiosis in Biological and Social Systems
A novel approach to treating symbiotic relations between biological species or social entities through their mutual influence on their respective carrying capacities is suggested, taking into account that this influence can be quite strong and requires a nonlinear functional framework.
Dynamic Transition in Symbiotic Evolution Induced by Growth Rate Variation
It is shown that, although the stationary states of the dynamical system do not depend on the growth rates, the latter influence the boundary of the basins of attraction, which explains this unusual effect of the qualitative change of dynamics by growth rate variation.
Emergence and mitigation of extreme events in a parametrically driven system with velocity-dependent potential
In this paper, we discuss the emergence of extreme events in a parametrically driven non-polynomial mechanical system with a velocity-dependent potential. We confirm the occurrence of extreme events
Dynamical system theory of periodically collapsing bubbles
We propose a reduced form set of two coupled continuous time equations linking the price of a representative asset and the price of a bond, the later quantifying the cost of borrowing. The feedbacks
Human population and atmospheric carbon dioxide growth dynamics: Diagnostics for the future
We analyze the growth rates of human population and of atmospheric carbon dioxide by comparing the relative merits of two benchmark models, the exponential law and the finite-time-singular (FTS)
Simulations of the Population Dynamics of Jellyfish Polyps Living on Artificial Substrates in Coastal Areas
Simulation results indicated that limiting jellyfish blooms in coastal areas is only possible if the amount of artificial substrate is reduced or removed, and the delayed effects of different survivorship conditions generated oscillations in polyp populations.
Simulation of social resilience affected by extreme events in ancient China
This study identifies historical extreme events and analyzes their impacts on social vulnerability, stability, and resilience in ancient China. We reconstructed extreme event sequences, simulated

The long-time dynamical properties of two individual-based models of biological coevolution, which self-optimize through mutation and selection to approximately maximize a community potential function, are compared.
The carrying capacity of ecosystems
It is proposed that the CC is the limit of growth or development of each and all hierarchical levels of biological integration, beginning with the population, and shaped by processes and interdependent relationships between finite resources and the consumers of those resources.
The Genesis, History, and Limits of Carrying Capacity
The concept of carrying capacity is employed in a remarkably wide range of disciplines and debates, and it has been forcefully critiqued within numerous fields. Yet its historical origins remain
Early warning signals of extinction in deteriorating environments
It is argued that the causes of a population’s decline are central to the predictability of its extinction, and populations crossing a transcritical bifurcation, experimentally induced by the controlled decline in environmental conditions, show statistical signatures of CSD after the onset of environmental deterioration and before the critical transition.
