Publication Detail
Balance simplices of 3-species May-Leonard systems.
Abstract
We investigate the existence of a two-dimensional invariant manifold that attracts all nonzero orbits in 3 species Lotka-Volterra systems with identical linear growth rates. This manifold, which we call the balance simplex, is the common boundary of the basin of repulsion of the origin and the basin of repulsion of infinity. The balance simplex is linked to ecological models where there is 'growth when rare' and competition for finite resources. By including alternative food sources for predators we cater for predator-prey type models. In the case that the model is competitive, the balance simplex coincides with the carrying simplex which is an unordered manifold (no two points may be ordered componentwise), but for non-competitive models the balance simplex need not be unordered. The balance simplex of our models contains all limit sets and is the graph of a piecewise analytic function over the unit probability simplex.
