Hopf bifurcation in a diffusive predator-prey model with herd behavior and prey harvesting
Heping Jiang,Xiaosong Tang
Keywords:Hopf bifurcation, predator-prey model, herd behavior, prey harvesting, delay.
      In this paper, the dynamics of a diffusive delayed predator-prey model with herd behavior and prey harvesting subject to the homogeneous Neumann boundary condition is considered. Firstly, choosing the harvesting term as a bifurcation parameter, then we obtain the existence and the stability of the equilibrium by analyzing the distribution of the roots of associated characteristic equation. Secondly, time delay is regarding as a bifurcation parameter, and the use of the normal form theory and center manifold theorem, the existence, stability and direction of bifurcating periodic solutions are all demonstrated detailly. Finally, summarizing some numerical simulations to illustrate the theoretical analysis.
