Stability Analysis in a Fractional Order Delayed Predator-Prey Model

Authors: Changjin Xu, Peiluan Li


In this paper, we study the stability of a fractional order delayed predator-prey model. By using the Laplace transform, we introduce a characteristic equation for the above system. It is shown that if all roots of the characteristic equation have negative parts, then the equilibrium of the above fractional order predator-prey system is Lyapunov globally asymptotical stable. An example is given to show the effectiveness of the approach presented in this paper.

Keywords: Laplace transform, characteristic equation, Fractional predator-prey model
