Exploring the Effects of Order of Events in Population Models with Discrete Time

Abstract: Careful consideration of the order of events will be discussed for
formulating population models with discrete time. Two examples will show how the order of
events can affect optimal control results; the control actions include harvesting and
augmentation of a population. One of the models is an integrodifference system which is continuous in
its spatial variable.
