I need a new topic

Hurrah for rabbits and foxes!
They make such nice predator-prey equations that we can solve using various differential equation methods.
They tell us that the foxes eat the rabbits so the rabbit population decreases.
But when there are no rabbits, the fox population decreases.
So the foxes decrease exponentially and the rabbits increase exponentially and they form a cyclical graph.
And that was the end of my class. There are no more differential equations for this semester.

Differential Equations are so much nicer when they have a real-life application.
So sorry that you will not have any more to enjoy...

BTW, I like the new pictures on your sidebar. It is time to do a little updating.
