A Minmax Problem for Parabolic Systems with Competitive Interactions
MetadataShow full metadata
In this paper we model the evolution and interaction between two competing populations as a system of parabolic partial differential equations. The interaction between the two populations is quantified by the presence of non-local terms in the system of equations. We model the whole system as a two-person zero-sum game where the gains accrued by one population necessarily translate into the others loss. For a suitably chosen objective functional (pay-off) we establish and characterize the saddle point of the game. The controls(strategies) are kernels of the interaction terms.
