In this paper we will consider a community of three mutually competing species modeled by the Lotka–Volterra system:
where xi(t) is the population size of the i-th species at time t, Ẋi denote and aij, bi are all strictly positive real numbers.
This system of ordinary diﬀerential equations represent a class of Kolmogorov systems. This kind of systems is widely used in the mathematical models for the dynamics of population, like predator-prey models or diﬀerent models for the spread of diseases.
A qualitative analysis of this Lotka-Volterra system based on dynamical systems theory will be performed, by studying the local behavior in equilibrium points and obtaining local dynamics properties.
Key words: Dynamical systems / Lotka-Volterra systems / stability
