Discover for Yourself: An Optimal Control Model in Insect Colonies
Winkel, Brian
PRIMUS, v23 n5 p459-466 2013
We describe the enlightening path of self-discovery afforded to the teacher of undergraduate mathematics. This is demonstrated as we find and develop background material on an application of optimal control theory to model the evolutionary strategy of an insect colony to produce the maximum number of queen or reproducer insects in the colony at the end of a season.
