To describe the dynamics of a resource-dependent age structured population, a general non-linear Leslie type model is derived. The dependence on the resources is introduced through the death rates of the reproductive age classes. The conditions assumed in the derivation of the model are regularity and plausible limiting behaviors of the functions in the model. It is shown that the model dynamics restricted to its ω-limit sets is a diffeomorphism of a compact set, and the period-1 fixed points…

An Age-structured Resource-Consumer Dynamical Model
This short letter develops Gamarra and Sole's previous work, and studies the dynamics of an age-structured resource-consumer model, in which the fertility coefficients are density independent.
On the Weak Solutions of the McKendrick Equation: Existence of Demography Cycles
The qualitative theory of the solutions of the McKendrick partial differential equation of population dynamics and of the Lotka renewal integral equation with time and age dependent birth rate are developed.
Study of degenerate bifurcations in Maps: a Feedback Systems Approach
The dynamical behavior of nonlinear maps undergoing degenerate period doubling or degenerate Hopf bifurcations is studied via a frequency-domain approach based on a discrete-time feedback representation and application of well-known engineering tools of harmonic balance to approximate the emerging solutions.
Minimal Realizations of Autonomous Chaotic Oscillators Based on Trans-Immittance Filters
A design process toward fully analog realizations of chaotic dynamics that can be considered canonical (minimum number of the circuit elements), robust (exhibit structurally stable strange attractors), and novel is described.
Multi-valued static memory with resonant tunneling diodes as natural source of chaos
This paper brings deep study focused on dynamical behavior associated with a multi-valued static memory (MVSM) cell composed by a pair of the resonant tunneling diodes. Ampere–voltage characteristic
Chaotic Systems and Their Recent Implementations on Improving Intelligent Systems
This chapter aims to provide a review-based study introducing recent implementations of the Chaos Theory on improving intelligent systems, which can be examined in the context of the Artificial Intelligence field.
Magnetic fields and chaos in coupled atom-cavity systems
This thesis explores the manifestation of many-body quantum physics in coupled atomcavity systems, through the lens of the Jaynes-Cummings-Hubbard model. This model captures the behaviour of a
A new 1D parameter-control chaotic framework
A novel parameter-control framework is introduced to produce many new one-dimensional (1D) chaotic maps that have more complex structures and better chaos performance than their corresponding seed and control maps.

The goal of these notes is to give a reasonably complete, although not exhaustive, discussion of what is commonly referred to as the Hopf bifurcation with applications to specific problems, including
Bifurcation Phenomena in Population Models
A typical attitude among biologists is that models are useful only insofar as they explain the unknown or suggest new experiments, which contrasts starkly with the physical sciences where small differences can often discriminate between competing theories.
