TitleFast Variables in Stochastic Population Dynamics
Author(s)Constable, George William Albert
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2015.
DescriptionXVII, 163 p. 40 illus., 31 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract Note??In this thesis two variants of the fast variable elimination method are developed. They are intuitive, simple to implement and give results which are in very good agreement with those found from numerical simulations. The relative simplicity of the techniques makes them ideal for applying to problems featuring demographic stochasticity, for experts and non-experts alike. ?? Within the context of mathematical modelling, fast variable elimination is one of the central tools with which one can simplify a multivariate problem.?? When used in the context of of deterministic systems, the theory is quite standard, but when stochastic effects are present, it becomes less straightforward to apply. ?? While the introductory and background chapters form an excellent primer to the theory of stochastic population dynamics, the techniques developed can be applied to systems exhibiting a separation of timescales in a variety of fields including population genetics, ecology and epidemiology. ??

TitleThe Influence of Demographic Stochasticity on Population Dynamics : A Mathematical Study of Noise-Induced Bistable States and Stochastic Patterns
Author(s)Biancalani, Tommaso
PublicationCham, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer International Publishing, 2014.
DescriptionXVII, 113 p. 37 illus., 16 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThe dynamics of population systems cannot be understood within the framework of ordinary differential equations, which assume that the number of interacting agents is infinite. With recent advances in ecology, biochemistry and genetics it is becoming increasingly clear that real systems are in fact subject to a great deal of noise. Relevant examples include social insects competing for resources, molecules undergoing chemical reactions in a cell and a pool of genomes subject to evolution.??When the population size is small, novel macroscopic phenomena can arise, which can be analyzed using the theory of stochastic processes. This thesis is centered on two unsolved problems in population dynamics: the symmetry breaking observed in foraging populations, and the robustness of spatial patterns. We argue that these problems can be resolved with the help of two novel concepts: noise-induced bistable states and stochastic patterns

TitleHear Where We Are : Sound, Ecology, and Sense of Place
Author(s)Stocker, Michael
PublicationNew York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer 2. Springer New York, 2013.
DescriptionXVI, 200 p. 31 illus., 12 illus. in color : online resource
Abstract NoteThroughout history, hearing and sound perception have been typically framed in the context of how sound conveys information and how that information influences the listener. Hear Where We Are inverts this premise and examines how humans and other hearing animals use sound to establish acoustical relationships with their surroundings. This simple inversion reveals a panoply of possibilities by which we can re-evaluate how hearing animals use, produce, and perceive sound. Nuance in vocalizations become signals of enticement or boundary setting; silence becomes a field ripe in auditory possibilities; predator/prey relationships are infused with acoustic deception, and sounds that have been considered territorial cues become the fabric of cooperative acoustical communities. This inversion also expands the context of sound perception into a larger perspective that centers on biological adaptation within acoustic habitats. Here, the rapid synchronized flight patterns of flocking birds and the tight maneuvering of schooling fish becomes an acoustic engagement. Likewise, when stridulating crickets synchronize their summer evening chirrups, it has more to do with the ???cricket community??? monitoring their collective boundaries rather than individual crickets establishing ???personal??? territory or breeding fitness. In Hear Where We Are the author continuously challenges many of the bio-acoustic orthodoxies, reframing the entire inquiry into sound perception and communication. By moving beyond our common assumptions, many of the mysteries of acoustical behavior become revealed, exposing a fresh and fertile panorama of acoustical experience and adaptation. Praise for Hear Where We Are: ???Hear Where We Are is as poetic as it is informative - in the tradition of some of the best scientific writing." Julia Whitty, Author, Deep Blue Home: An Intimate Ecology of Our Wild Ocean ???Hear Where We Are opens up an entirely new way of understanding not only sound perception but our place within the world??? I no longer just hear my surroundings, rather I am now aware of how deeply sound shapes my relationship to the world around me...??? Kevin W.
