Persistent age distributions for an age-structured two-sex population model
AbstractIn this paper we formulate an age-structured two-sex population model which takes into account a monogamous marriage rule and the duration of marriage. We are mainly concerned with the existence of exponential solutions with a persistent age distribution. First we provide a semigroup method to deal with the time-evolution problem of our two-sex population model. Next, by constructing a fixed point mapping, we prove the existence of exponential solutions under homogeneity conditions.
