%project3 - Math 151
%This is to illustrate eigenvalues and
%eigenvectors arising from a population
%projection model.
%Read in a command file that is
%this file of commands for MATLAB
%by typing the name of this file in the command line
% project3
%where project3.m is this file on your
%computer, modified to use the particular parameters
%for your case
% P is the projection matrix and n0 is the
% initial population structure, ni is the population
% structure at time i, nitot is the total population size
% at time i, ninorm is the normalized population structure
% at time i (sum of the elements of ninorm is 1)

n0=[40;35;25],pause
n0tot=sum(n0)
n2=P^2*n0,pause
n2tot=sum(n2),pause
n2norm=n2/n2tot,pause
% growthi is the population growth rate from time i to i+1
% now compute the changes from time 20 to time 21
