Threshold policies control for predator - prey systems using a control Liapunov function approach. (English) Zbl 1072.92054
Summary: The stability of predator-prey models, in the context of exploitation of renewable resources, subject to threshold policies (TP), is studied in this paper using the idea of backstepping and control Lyapunov functions (CLF) well known in control theory, as well as the concept of virtual equilibria. TPs are defined and analysed for different types of one and two species predator-prey models. The models studied are the single species Noy-Meir herbivore-vegetation model, in a grazing management context, as well as the Rosenzweig-MacArthur two species predator-prey model, in a fishery management context. TPs are shown to be versatile and useful in managing renewable resources, being simple to design and implement, and also yielding advantages in situations of overexploitation.
