Keywords: Predator-prey interaction | Model SIS

An epidemiological approch is used to model predator-prey interaction. The concept is borrowed from SIS model of disease transmission. In the predator-prey interaction, predation is viewed as a "disease" of the predator transmitted by the prey. In this approch, the predator population is partitioned into hungry and satisfied subpopulation. The stability of the steady states from the equations is analyzed.
