DESCRIPTION

Modeling the propagation of a ravaging insect and measures limiting or amplifying this propagation. Producing a model that can be applied to different invaders. The model includes variables allowing the simulation of the evolution of the insects’ population after applying different ways to control them.

INTENTION PÉDAGOGIQUE

Raise awareness about behaviours that accentuate the propagation of insects, of plants, of animals or diseases that come from elsewhere and that cause great damage.

The function studied in this situation is the exponential model. Although, it’s principally the effect of the parameters on a function that is targeted by the assessment of this situation.
