Models Illustrating the Use of GoldSim for Ecology and Human Health Applications

All the models assigned to the selected category are listed below.

You can filter the list by entering keywords or phrases into the search field:

  • Population Dynamics and Chaos

    This model illustrates perhaps the most famous example of chaotic behavior: that exhibited by the ┬┤logistic difference┬┤ equation to describe the growth of a population subject to a carrying capacity.

  • Predator-Prey Models

    This example implements several predator-prey models taken from "Modeling the Environment" by Andrew Ford.

  • Salmon Life Cycle

    This is a simple model that simulates the life cycle of a salmon population as it migrates from the stream, to the ocean, and back to the stream. Although the data and model structure are fictional, it does provide a simple example of how such a model could be constructed.

  • Acute Infection Model

    These two models (continuous and discrete) simulate the spread of an acute infection through a population

  • Simulating a Water Conservation Program

    Simulate the feedback loop between water sales revenues and funding a conservation program.
