Delay Logistic Equation
This shows the solution of the scalar delay logistic equation in blue along with the solution of the logistic equation without delay () in red.
For , solutions are monotonic. For , the solutions are oscillatory and asymptotically approach . For , the solutions approach a limit cycle. The boundaries can be determined by considering the test solution , which gives the equation ; that has the solution , where is the ProductLog function.
