Periodicity for a Semi–Ratio–Dependent Predator–Prey System with Delays on Time Scales

Authors: Kejun Zhuang


In this paper, the semi–ratio–dependent predator-prey system with nonmonotonic functional response on time scales is investigated. By using the coincidence degree theory, sufficient conditions for existence of periodic solutions are obtained.

Keywords: time scales, coincidence degree, Semi–ratio–dependent, predator–prey system
