AbstractMost of the functional responses which have been incorporated to formulate mathematical biology consider individual contact or predator cooperation. In this study, we have introduced a different functional response that describes the prey-predator system when predators form a line and cooperatively attack a group of predators. We have also described the effect of prey on this system. Additionally, we find all the equilibrium points and their local stability behaviour.
