The relativistic Lotka-Volterra (RLV) lattice and the discrete-time relativistic Lotka-Volterra (dRLV) lattice are investigated by using the bilinear formalism. The bilinear equations for them are systematically constructed with the aid of the singularity confinement test. It is shown that the RLV lattice and dRLV lattice are decomposed into the Backlund transformations of the Toda lattice system. The N-soliton solutions are explicitly constructed in the form of the Casorati determinant. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science B.V.
