(11C) Rabbits VS Foxes Simulation
This program was modify from the promotional ad for the
HP25 Scientific Programmable calculator. A simple ecological model of interacting populations consists of rabbits with an infinite food supply and foxes that prey on them. The system can be approximated by a pair of nonlinear, firstorder differential equations. This program simulate the population between the rabbit and fox given the number of rabbits and the number of foxes. Example: α = 0.01 // STO 0 // Frequency (how often rabbits and foxes meet) h = 0.02 // STO 1 // Step size r = 300 // Rabbits f = 150 // Foxes In Run mode: Clear REG ,01 STO 0 ,02 STO 1 300 [ENTER] 150 f [A] Display keep going: 303,00156 // 303 are Rabbits and 156 are Foxes 305,00162 307,00169 309,00176 311,00183 312,00191 312,00199 . . . Simulation keep going for observation........ Press any keys except [ON] to stop. Press [R/S] to continue. User can turn off the calculator and keep continue from where you stop the last time simply press [R/S] assuming that the storage registers haven't been change.

There was a beautiful colour version of this, complete with Pi Charts on cassette that came with the ZX Spectrum in 1982

From the code I assume they are: \[ \begin{eqnarray} \dot{r}&=2r\alpha fr \\ \dot{f}&=\alpha frf \end{eqnarray} \] This looks very much like the Lotka–Volterra equations: \[ \begin{aligned} \frac {dx}{dt}&=\alpha x\beta xy\\ \frac {dy}{dt}&=\delta xy\gamma y \end{aligned} \] What is reason for the peculiar factor 2 in \(\dot{r}=2r\alpha fr\)? At a stationary point the derivative vanishes: \(\dot{r}=\dot{f}=0\). This leads to: \begin{aligned} r(2\alpha f)=0&\Rightarrow &f=\frac{2}{\alpha}\\ f(\alpha r1)=0&\Rightarrow &r=\frac{1}{\alpha} \end{aligned} Thus for the value given \(\alpha=0.01\) we end up with: \begin{aligned} r=100\\ f=200 \end{aligned} This looks like a lot of foxes compared to the rabbits.

RE: (11C) Rabbits VS Foxes Simulation
Thanks Thomas Klemm
I was adapting this program to work for 11C and I don't know why that factor of 2 is for but I guess is that the rabbit reproduce faster than a fox? Thank You for the link to get more details about this equation. Gamo

RE: (11C) Rabbits VS Foxes Simulation
Thanks a lot for providing the original source.
It's a bit disturbing that the phasespace plot doesn't show closed curves. But that might be due to using a simple Euler method. I wonder if using Runge–Kutta methods would even fit the 49 steps available. Cheers Thomas
