Canard phenomenon in a slow-fast modified Leslie–Gower model

Geometrical Singular Perturbation Theory has been successful to investigate a broad range of biological problems with different time scales. The aim of this paper is to apply this theory to a predator-prey model of modified Leslie–Gower type for which we consider that prey reproduces mush faster than predator. This naturally leads to introduce a small parameter ϵ which gives rise to a slow-fast system. This system has a special folded singularity which has not been analyzed in the classical work [15]. We use the blow-up technique to visualize the behavior near this fold point P. Outside of this region the dynamics are given by classical regular and singular perturbation theory. This allows to quantify geometrically the attractive limit-cycle with an error of O(ϵ) and shows that it exhibits the canard phenomenon while crossing P.
