Marine population dynamics problem
|Marine population dynamics problem|
|Continuous control values:|
The Marine population dynamics problem estimates growth and mortality rates of a marine species at each stage (for example ages or development stage) given the population as a function of time.( Problem taken from the COPS library)
The problem is given by
where and are the growth and mortality rates at stage respectively and the initial conditions are unknown. The error between computed and observed data is minimized.
There are stages and timepoints at which the error is minimized.
