A note on competition in the bioreactor with toxin
In this paper, we investigate a model with yields: γ1 = A 1 + B 1 S m and γ2 = A 2 + B 2 S n , for the competition in the bioreactor of two competitors for a single nutrient, in which one of the competitors produces toxin against its opponent. The existence of limit cycles in the 3-D system is obtained by using a Hopf bifurcation.
