Scroungers Progress Report #Scroungers

This week we worked on different ordinary differential equation models to help us understand the interactions between scroungers, producers and prey. In this process we learned how to interpret models by using Mathematica to solve for the steady state solutions of our models; we then use the Jacobian of the system of equations that make up each model to determine if the model is stable or unstable at the solution. We will continue to create more complex models to better understand the relationship between scroungers, producers and prey.
