Neimark-Sacker bifurcation and chaos control in Hassell-Varley model. (English) Zbl 1377.92067
Summary: We investigate the complex behaviour of a modified Nicholson-Bailey model. The modification is proposed by Hassel and Varley taking into account that interaction between parasitoids is taken in such a way that the searching area per parasitoid is inversely proportional to the m-th power of the population density of parasitoids. Under certain parametric conditions the unique positive equilibrium point of system is locally asymptotically stable. Moreover, it is proved that system undergoes Neimark-Sacker bifurcation for small range of parameters by using standard mathematical techniques of bifurcation theory. In order to control Neimark-Sacker bifurcation, we apply simple feedback control strategy and pole-placement technique which is a modification of OGY method. Moreover, the hybrid control methodology is also implemented for chaos controlling. Numerical simulations are provided to illustrate theoretical discussion.
