M. A. AL-Jawary, F. S. Ahmed, Fadhel S. F.


In this paper, we have implement an analytic approximate method based on power series method (PSM) to obtain asolutions for Volterra’s population model of population growth of a species in a closed system. The numerical solution isobtained by combining the PSM and Pad´e technique. The Pad´e approximation that often show superior performance overseries approximation are effectively used in the analysis to capture essential behavior of the population u(t) of identicalindividuals. The results demonstrate that the method has many merits such as being derivative-free, overcome the difficultyarising in calculating Adomian polynomials to handle the nonlinear terms in Adomian Decomposition Method (ADM).It does not require to calculate Lagrange multiplier as in Variational Iteration Method (VIM) and no needs to construct ahomotopy and solve the corresponding algebraic equations as in Homotopy Perturbation Method (HPM). Moreover, weused this method to solve some scientific models, namely, the hybrid selection model, the Riccati model and the logisticmodel to provide the analytic solutions. The obtained analytic approximate solutions of applying the PSM is in fullagreement with the results obtained with those methods available in the literature. The software used for the calculationsin this study was MATHEMATICAr 8.0.
