Below I tried to solve Population Growth problem, I provide you the mathematical solution. Also, I create MATLAB code, however i feel like that i repeat this code to each part of this code as you can see. How could I improve this code?
Assume a continuous growth model where the function that gives the rate of change R is defined as . Provide the function n, which represents the population size.
If the growth of a population follows the logistic law but there is also a term for population reduction (e.g., from a predator while the members of the population are the prey), the equation that expresses the population size is of the form
where the term is given here to be and it represents a term for population reduction. The constants are positive. Normalize the equation by setting and .Find the steady solutions of the problem (real and positive) and then implement a program in MATLAB to numerically solve the dimensionless form of the equation. Make the graphical representation of the numerical solution for , with initial conditions , and respectively. What do you observe?
So we have
• We are going to find the function :
To find , we integrate :
where C is the integration constant, which can be determined if an initial condition is given, such as .
• Now we are going to normalize the equation:
Let and . Then:
We substitute into the original equation:
• Then we are going to calculate the Stationary Points:
Set :

I see that you have
f = @(tau, N) ar_b * N * (1 - N/Ka) - N / (1 + N);
and
syms N
eqn = ar_b * N * (1 - N / Ka) - N / (1 + N) == 0;
...
f = @(N) ar_b * N * (1 - N / Ka) - N / (1 + N);
and
eqn = ar_b_values(i) * N * (1 - N / Ka) - N / (1 + N) == 0; % inside a for loop
and
f = @(N) ar_b * 0.4 * N .* (1 - N / Ka) - N ./ (1 + N);
I wouldn;t worry about the redundancy. The code is clear, which makes it easier to understand, for others, and for you, if you sxccome back to it in a couple of years.
I don't understand why there is "0.4" in the last equation.
I have two other questions - which reveal my lack of understanding of the model, but I'm curious:
• The first plot, with r,g,b,k traces, shows that N goes asymptotically to about N=32.5 when N0=2, 25, and 40. The phase plane plot shows what I interpret as a stable equilibrium at N~=27 (the value of N where dN/dtau crosses zero, with negative slope). Why is the equilibrium value for N not the same in the first plot and the phase plane plot?
• The phase plane plot shows dN/dtau<0 when N=2. By tracing the expected path on the phase plane plot, starting at N=2 , I expect N to decrease asymptotically to zero. But the first plot shows dN/dt>0 when N=N0=2. Why the mismatch?

@Sam Chak, thanks. Once again, I wish I could give a thumbs up to your explanation.
