 Abstract
The Lotka-McKendrick model which describes the evolution of a single population is developed from the well known Malthus model. In this paper, we introduce the Lotka-McKendrick model. We approximate the solution to the model using hp-discontinuous Galerkin finite element method. The numerical results show that the presented hp-discontinuous Galerkin method is very efficient in case that the solution has a sharp decay.
