Verhulst model

Stochastic sensitivity of equilibrium and cycles for 1D discrete maps

The response problem of equilibrium and cycles for stochastically forced Verhulst population model is considered. Theoretical and empirical approaches are used for stochastically sensitivity analysis. The theoretical approach is based on the firth approximation method and the empirical approach is based on direct numerical simulation. The correspondence between the two approaches for Verhulst population model is demonstrated. The increase of discrete system sensitivity to external noise in the period­doubling bifurcation zone under transition to chaos is shown.
