optimization modelOptimierungsmodell (ger.)

A mathematical model for the simulation of optimality problems, e.g. optimal strategies of feeding behaviour.
 1971

An optimization model has been developed for the analysis of food selection behavior. The model determines the numbers and types of prey species consumed given predator preferences and prey availability. Preferences are expressed as an ordinal ranking of all possible prey combinations. The model generates hypotheses concerning conditions for "predator switching" and other predator strategiesRapport, D.J. (1971). An optimization model of food selection. Amer. Nat. 105, 575587.
