Abstract
As new applications of Schrödinger type inequalities appearing in Jiang (J. Inequal. Appl. 2016:247, 2016), we first investigate the existence and uniqueness of a Schrödingerean equilibrium. Next we propose a tritrophic Hastings-Powell model with two different Schrödingerean time delays. Finally, the stability and direction of the Schrödingerean Hopf bifurcation are also investigated by using the center manifold theorem and normal form theorem.

1 Introduction
A biological system is a nonlinear system, so it is still a public problem how to control the biological system balance. Previously a lot of research was done. Especially, the research on the predator-prey system’s dynamic behaviors has obtained much attention from the scholars. There is also much research on the stability of predator-prey system with time delays. The time delays have a very complex impact on the dynamic behaviors of the nonlinear dynamic system (see [2]). May and Odter (see [3]) introduced a general example of such a generalized model, that is to say, they investigated a three species model and the results show that the positive equilibrium is always locally stable when the system has two equal time delays.
Hassard and Kazarinoff (see [4]) proposed a three species food chain model with chaotic dynamical behavior in 1991, and then the dynamic properties of the model were studied. Berryman and Millstein (see [5]) studied the control of chaos of a three species Hastings-Powell food chain model. The stability of biological feasible equilibrium points of the modified food web model was also investigated. By introducing disease in the prey population, Shilnikov et al. (see [2]) modified the Hastings-Powell model and the stability of biological feasible equilibria was also obtained.
2 Equilibrium and local stability analysis
Lemma 2.1
3 Existence of Schrödingerean Hopf bifurcation
Case I: \(\tau_{1} =\tau_{2} =\tau\ne0\).
If we define \(H ( z )=az^{4}+bz^{3}+cz^{2}+dz+k\), then we have the following result from \(H ( {+\infty} )=+\infty\).
Lemma 3.1
If \(H ( 0 )<0\), then (13) has at least one positive root. Suppose that (13) has four positive roots, which are defined by \(z_{1}\), \(z_{2}\), \(z_{3}\), and \(z_{4}\). Then (12) has four positive roots \({\omega_{k} =\sqrt{z_{k} }}\), where \(k=1,2,3,4\).
Put \(\tau_{0} =\tau_{k}^{ ( j )} =\min_{k\in \{ {1,2,3,4} \}} \{ {\tau_{k}^{ ( 0 )} } \}\). Let \(\lambda ( \tau )=\alpha ( \tau )+i\omega ( \tau )\) be the root of (9) near \(\tau=\tau_{k} \), which satisfies \(\alpha ( {\tau _{k} } )=0\) and \(\omega ( {\tau_{k} } )=\omega_{0} \). Then we have the following result from Lemma 3.1 and (14).
Lemma 3.2
Proof
This completes the proof of Lemma 3.2. □
By applying Lemmas 3.1 and 3.2, we have the following result.
Theorem 3.1
- (i)
For the equilibrium point \(E^{\ast}= ( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\), the Schrödinger system (2) is asymptotically stable for \(\tau\in[ {0,\tau_{0} } )\). It is unstable when \(\tau>\tau_{0} \).
- (ii)
If the Schrödinger system (2) satisfies Lemmas 3.1 and 3.2, then the Schrödinger Hopf bifurcation will occur at \(E^{\ast}( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\) when \(\tau=\tau_{0} \).
Case II: \(\tau_{1} \ne0\) and \(\tau_{2} =0\).
If we define \(H ( {z_{1} } )=a_{1} z_{1} ^{8}+b_{1} z_{1} ^{6}+c_{1} z_{1} ^{4}+d_{1} z_{1} ^{2}+k_{1}\), then we have the following result from (19) and \(H ( {+\infty} )=+\infty \).
Lemma 3.3
If \(H ( 0 )<0\), then (13) has at least one positive root. Suppose that (13) has four positive roots, which are defined by \(z_{11}\), \(z_{12}\), \(z_{13}\), and \(z_{14} \). Then we know that (12) has four positive roots \(\omega_{k} =\sqrt{z_{1k} }\), where \(k=1,2,3,4\).
Let \(\lambda ( \tau )=\alpha ( \tau )+i\omega ( \tau )\) be the root of (9) near \(\tau=\tau_{10} \), which satisfies \(\alpha ( {\tau_{10} } )=0\) and \(\omega ( {\tau _{10} } )=\omega_{0} \). Then we obtain the following result.
Lemma 3.4
Proof
So we complete the proof of Lemma 3.3. □
By applying Lemmas 3.3 and 3.4, we prove the existence of the Schrödinger Hopf bifurcation.
Theorem 3.2
- (i)
For the equilibrium point \(E^{\ast}( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\), the Schrödinger system (2) is asymptotically stable for \(\tau_{1} \in[ {0,\tau_{10} } )\). And it is unstable for \(\tau_{1} >\tau_{10} \).
- (ii)
If the Schrödinger system (2) satisfies Lemmas 3.3 and 3.4, then the Schrödinger system (2) undergoes the Schrödinger Hopf bifurcation at \(E^{\ast}( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\) when \(\tau_{1} =\tau_{10} \).
Case III: \(\tau_{1} =0\) and \(\tau_{2} \ne0\).
If we define \(H ( {z_{2} } )=a_{2} z_{2} ^{4}+b_{2} z_{2} ^{3}+c_{2} z_{2} ^{2}+d_{2} z_{2} +k_{2} \), then we have the following result from \(H ( {+\infty} )=+\infty\).
Lemma 3.5
If \(H ( 0 )<0\), then (27) has at least one positive root. Suppose that (27) has four positive roots, which are defined by \(z_{21}\), \(z_{22}\), \(z_{23}\), and \(z_{24} \). Then (26) has four positive roots \(\omega_{k} =\sqrt{z_{2k} }\), where \(k=1,2,3,4\).
Define \(\tau_{20} =\tau_{2k}^{ ( j )} =\min_{k\in \{ {1,2,3,4} \}} \{ {\tau_{2k}^{ ( 0 )} } \}\). Let \(\lambda ( \tau )=\alpha ( \tau )+i\omega ( \tau )\) be the root of (9) near \(\tau=\tau_{20} \), which satisfies \(\alpha ( {\tau_{20} } )=0\) and \(\omega ( {\tau_{20} } )=\omega_{0} \). Then we obtain the following result from (25) and (28).
Lemma 3.6
Proof
This proof is similar to the proof of Lemma 3.4, so we omit it here. □
By applying Lemmas 3.5 and 3.6 to (24) we have the following result.
Theorem 3.3
- (i)
\(E^{\ast}( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\) is asymptotically stable when \(\tau_{2} \in[ {0,\tau_{20} } )\) and unstable when \(\tau_{2} >\tau_{20} \).
- (ii)
If the Schrödinger system (2) satisfies Lemmas 3.5 and 3.6, then the Schrödinger Hopf bifurcation occurs at \(E^{\ast}( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\) when \(\tau_{2} =\tau_{20} \).
Case IV: \(\tau_{1} \ne\tau_{2} \ne0\).
We consider (7) with \(\tau_{1} \) in the stability range. Regarding \(\tau _{2} \) as a parameter, and without loss of generality, we only consider the Schrödinger system (2) under the case I.
Lemma 3.7
Suppose that equation (30) has at least finite positive roots, which are defined by \(z_{31}, z_{32},\ldots, z_{3k}\). So (26) also has four positive roots \(\omega_{k} =\sqrt {z_{3i} }\), where \(i=1,2,\ldots,k\).
It is obvious that \(\pm i\omega\) is a pair of purely imaginary roots of (7). Define \(\tau_{30} =\tau_{3i}^{ ( j )} =\min\{\tau _{3i}^{ ( j )} \vert {i=1,2,\ldots,k,j=0,1,2,\ldots} \}\). Let \(\lambda ( \tau )=\alpha ( \tau )+i\omega ( \tau )\) be the root of (9) near \(\tau=\tau _{30} \), which satisfies \(\alpha ( {\tau_{30} } )=0\) and \(\omega ( {\tau_{30} } )=\omega_{0} \).
From (30) and (31) we have the following result.
Lemma 3.8
By applying Lemmas 3.5 and 3.6 to (24), we have the following theorem based on the Schrödingerean Hopf theorem for FDEs.
Theorem 3.4
- (i)
\(E^{\ast}( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\) is asymptotically stable for \(\tau_{2} \in [ {0,\tau_{30} } )\) and unstable when \(\tau_{2} >\tau_{30} \).
- (ii)
If Lemmas 3.7 and 3.8 hold, then the Schrödingerean Hopf bifurcation occurs at \(E^{\ast}( {x^{\ast},y^{\ast},z^{\ast}} )\) when \(\tau_{2} =\tau_{30} \).
4 Numerical simulations
Through a simple calculation, we have \(E^{\ast}= ( {1.2454,0.1523,0.9467} )\). Firstly, we get \({\tau_{0} =2.31}\) when \(\tau_{1} =\tau_{2} =\tau\ne0\). Then we have \(\tau_{10} =2.58\) when \(\tau_{2} =0\). Next we obtain \({\tau_{20} =2.945}\) when \(\tau_{1} =0\). Finally, by regarding \(\tau_{2} \) as a parameter and letting \(\tau_{1} =2.5\) in its stable interval, we prove that \(E^{\ast}\) is locally asymptotically stable for \(\tau_{2} \in ( {0,\tau_{30} } )\) and unstable for \(\tau_{2} >\tau_{30} \).
