Description

The problem of managing resources of a limited planet invokes the logistic modelwith constant carrying capacity. However, the growth of industrial systems andpopulations of countries with limited resources demonstrates that limits to growthare changing with new technologies. This paper presents a new method foranalysing growth curves representing the logistic growth with changing carryingcapacity.

A method for analysing growth curves by using the logistic model with changing carrying capacity

The problem of managing resources of a limited planet invokes the logistic modelwith constant carrying capacity. However, the growth of industrial systems andpopulations of countries with limited resources demonstrates that limits to growthare changing with new technologies. This paper presents a new method foranalysing growth curves representing the logistic growth with changing carryingcapacity.
