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)

## Mathematical formulation

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.

## Parameters

There are stages and timepoints at which the error is minimized.

## Source Code
