Title:Stochastic Foundations in Movement Ecology [electronic resource] : Anomalous Diffusion, Front Propagation and Random Searches
Author(s): Vicen Mndez
Daniel Campos
Frederic Bartumeus
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents the fundamental theory for non-standard diffusion problems in movement ecology. Lvy processes and anomalous diffusion have shown to be both powerful and useful tools for qualitatively and quantitativelydescribing a wide variety of spatial population ecological phenomena and dynamics, such as invasion fronts and search strategies. Adopting a self-contained, textbook-style approach, the authors provide the elements of statisticalphysics and stochastic processes on which the modeling of movement ecology is based and systematically introduce the physical characterization of ecological processes at the microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic levels. The explicitdefinition of these levels and their interrelations is particularly suitable to coping with the broad spectrum of space and time scales involved in bio-ecological problems. Including numerous exercises (with solutions), this text isaimed at graduate students and newcomers in this field at the interface of theoretical ecology, ma thematical biology and physics

Title:Quasi-Stationary Distributions [electronic resource] : Markov Chains, Diffusions and Dynamical Systems

Date:2013

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Main concepts of quasi-stationary distributions (QSDs) for killed processes are the focus of the present volume. For diffusions, the killing is at the boundary and for dynamical systems there is a trap. The authors present theQSDs as the ones that al low describing the long-term behavior conditioned to not being killed. Studies in this research area started with Kolmogorov and Yaglom and in the last few decades have received a great deal of attention. Theauthors provide the exponential distribution pr operty of the killing time for QSDs, present the more general result on their existence and study the process of trajectories that survive forever. For birth-and-death chains anddiffusions, the existence of a single or a continuum of QSDs is described. Th ey study the convergence to the extremal QSD and give the classification of the survival process. In this monograph, the authors discuss Gibbs QSDs forsymbolic systems and absolutely continuous QSDs for repellers. The findings described are relevant to re searchers in the fields of Markov chains, diffusions, potential theory, dynamical systems, and in areas where extinction is acentral concept. The theory is illustrated with numerous examples. The volume uniquely presents the distribution behavior of indiv iduals who survive in a decaying population for a very long time. It also provides the background forapplications in mathematical ecology, statistical physics, computer sciences, and economics

Title:Mathematics for the Life Sciences [electronic resource] : Calculus, Modeling, Probability, and Dynamical Systems
Author(s): Glenn Ledder
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Mathematics for the Life Sciences provides present and future biologists with the mathematical concepts and tools needed to understand and use mathematical models and read advanced mathematical biology books. It presentsmathematics in biological cont exts, focusing on the central mathematical ideas, and providing detailed explanations. The author assumes no mathematics background beyond algebra and precalculus. Calculus is presented as aone-chapter primer that is suitable for readers who have not stud ied the subject before, as well as readers who have taken a calculus course and need a review. This primer is followed by a novel chapter on mathematical modeling thatbegins with discussions of biological data and the basic principles of modeling. The rem ainder of the chapter introduces the reader to topics in mechanistic modeling (deriving models from biological assumptions) and empiricalmodeling (using data to parameterize and select models). The modeling chapter contains a thorough treatment of key ide as and techniques that are often neglected in mathematics books. It also provides the reader with a sophisticatedviewpoint and the essential background needed to make full use of the remainder of the book, which includes two chapters on probability and it s applications to inferential statistics and three chapters on discrete and continuousdynamical systems. The biological content of the book is self-contained and includes many basic biology topics such as the genetic code, Mendelian genetics, population d ynamics, predator-prey relationships, epidemiology, andimmunology. The large number of problem sets include some drill problems along with a large number of case studies. The latter are divided into step-by-step problems and sorted into the appropriate se ction, allowing readers togradually develop complete investigations from understanding the biological assumptions to a complete analysis

Note:Since the early eighties, Ali Sleyman stnel has been one of the main contributors to the field of Malliavin calculus. In a workshop held in Paris, June 2010 several prominent researchers gave exciting talks in honor of his60th birthday. The present v olume includes scientific contributions from this workshop. Probability theory is first and foremost aimed at solving real-life problems containing randomness. Markov processes are one of the key tools formodeling that plays a vital part concerning such p roblems. Contributions on inventory control, mutation-selection in genetics and public-private partnerships illustrate several applications in this volume. Stochastic differentialequations, be they partial or ordinary, also play a key role in stochastic m odeling. Two of the contributions analyze examples that share a focus on probabilistic tools, namely stochastic analysis and stochastic calculus. Three otherpapers are devoted more to the theoretical development of these aspects. The volume addresses grad uate students and researchers interested in stochastic analysis and its applications

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this volume, a distinguished set of international scholars examine the nature of collaboration between life partners in the sciences, with particular attention to the ways in which personal and professional dynamics can fosteror inhibit scientific practice. Breaking from traditional gender analyses which focus on divisions of labor and the assignment of credit, the studies scrutinize collaboration as a variable process between partners living in thenineteenth and twentieth centuries who were marri ed and divorced, heterosexual and homosexual, aristocratic and working-class and politically right and left. The contributors analyze cases shaped by their particular geographicallocations, ranging from retreat settings like the English countryside and Wo ods Hole, Massachusetts, to university laboratories and urbancenters in Berlin, Stockholm, Geneva and London. The volume demonstrates how the terms andmeanings of collaboration, variably shaped by disciplinary imperatives, cultural mores, and the agency o f the collaborators themselves, illuminate critical intellectual and institutional developments in the modern sciences

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This introductory text in graph theory focuses on partial cubes, which are graphs that are isometrically embeddable into hypercubes of an arbitrary dimension, as well as bipartite graphs, and cubical graphs. This branch of graphtheory has developed r apidly during the past three decades, producing exciting results and establishing links to other branches of mathematics. Currently, Graphs and Cubes is the only book available on the market that presents acomprehensive coverage of cubical graph and part ial cube theories. Many exercises, along with historical notes, are included at the end of every chapter, and readers are encouraged to explore the exercises fully, and use them as abasis for research projects. The prerequisites for this text include fam iliarity with basic mathematical concepts and methods on the level of undergraduate courses in discrete mathematics, linear algebra, group theory, and topologyof Euclidean spaces. While the book is intended for lower-division graduate students in mathemat ics, it will be of interest to a much wider audience because of their rich structural properties, partial cubes appear in theoreticalcomputer science, coding theory, genetics, and even the political and social sciences

Title:A Short History of Mathematical Population Dynamics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Nicolas Bacar
Date:2011
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:

As Eugene Wigner stressed, mathematics has proven unreasonably effective in the physical sciences and their technological applications. The role of mathematics in the biological, medical and social sciences has been much moremodest but has recentl y grown thanks to the simulation capacity offered by modern computers.

This book traces the history of population dynamics---a theoretical subject closely connected to genetics, ecology, epidemiology anddemography---where mathematics has brought si gnificant insights. It presents an overview of the genesis of several important themes: exponential growth, from Euler and Malthus to the Chinese one-child policy the development ofstochastic models, from Mendel's laws and the question of extinction of fa mily names to percolation theory for the spread of epidemics, and chaotic populations, where determinism and randomness intertwine.

The reader of thisbook will see, from a different perspective, the problems that scientists face when governments as k for reliable predictions to help control epidemics (AIDS, SARS, swine flu), manage renewable resources (fishing quotas, spread ofgenetically modified organisms) or anticipate demographic evolutions such as aging.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is an introduction to the dynamics of reaction-diffusion systems, with a focus on fronts and stationary spatial patterns. Emphasis is on systems that are non-standard in the sense that either the transport is not simplyclassical diffusion ( Brownian motion) or the system is not homogeneous. A important feature is the derivation of the basic phenomenological equations from the mesoscopic system properties. Topics addressed include transport withinertia, described by persistent random walks an d hyperbolic reaction-transport equations and transport by anomalous diffusion, in particular subdiffusion, where the mean square displacement grows sublinearly with time. In particularreaction-diffusion systems are studied where the medium is in turn eit her spatially inhomogeneous, compositionally heterogeneous or spatially discrete. Applications span a vast range of interdisciplinary fields and the systemsconsidered can be as different as human or animal groups migrating under external influences, popul ation ecology and evolution, complex chemical reactions, or networks of biological cells. Several chapters treat these applications indetail

Edition:Second
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Applied Probability presents a unique blend of theory and applications, with special emphasis on mathematical modeling, computational techniques, and examples from the biological sciences. It can serve as a textbook for graduatestudents in applied ma thematics, biostatistics, computational biology, computer science, physics, and statistics. Readers should have a working knowledge of multivariate calculus, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, andelementary probability theory. Chapter 1 revi ews elementary probability and provides a brief survey of relevant results from measure theory. Chapter 2 is an extended essay on calculating expectations. Chapter 3 deals with probabilisticapplications of convexity, inequalities, and optimization theory. Chapters 4 and 5 touch on combinatorics and combinatorial optimization. Chapters 6 through 11 present core material on stochastic processes. If supplemented withappropriate sections from Chapters 1 and 2, there is sufficient material for a traditional se mester-long course in stochastic processes covering the basics of Poisson processes, Markov chains, branching processes, martingales, anddiffusion processes. The second edition adds two new chapters on asymptotic and numerical methods and an appendix that separates some of the more delicate mathematical theory from the steady flow of examples in the main text. Besidesthe two new chapters, the second edition includes a more extensive list of exercises, many additions to the exposition of combinatorics, new material on rates of convergence to equilibrium in reversible Markov chains, a discussion ofbasic reproduction numbers in population modeling, and better coverage of Brownian motion. Because many chapters are nearly self-contained, mathematical scientist s from a variety of backgrounds will find Applied Probability useful as areference.

Note:This volume is dedicated to the memory of the late Professor C.C. (Chris) Heyde (1939-2008), distinguished statistician, mathematician and scientist. Chris worked at a time when many of the foundational building blocks ofprobability and statistics we re being put in place by a phalanx of eminent scientists around the world. He contributed significantly to this effort and took his place deservedly among the top-most rank of researchers. Throughout hiscareer, Chris maintained also a keen interest in app lications of probability and statistics, and in the history of the subject. The magnitude of his impact on his chosen area of research, both in Australia and internationally, was wellrecognised by the abundance of honours he received within and without th e profession. The book is comprised of a number of Chriss papers covering each one of four major topics to which he contributed. These papers are reproducedherein. The topics, and the papers in them, were selected by four of Chriss friends and collaborato rs: Ishwar Basawa, Peter Hall, Ross Maller (overall Editor of the volume) and Eugene Seneta. Each topic is provided with an overviewby the selecting editor. The topics cover a range of areas to which Chris made especially important contributions: Inferenc e in Stochastic Processes, Rates of Convergence in the Central Limit Theorem, the Law of the Iterated Logarithm,and Branching Processes and Population Genetics. The Editor and the other contributors to the volume include well known researchers in probabil ity and statistics. The collection begins with an authors pick of a number of hispapers which Chris considered most interesting and significant, chosen by him shortly before his death. A biography of Chris by his close friend and collaborator, Joe Gani, i s also included. An introduction by the Editor and acomprehensive bibliography of Chriss publications complete the volume.

UK Nonlinear News (Review of First Edition) The book will be useful for all kinds of dynamical systems courses. [It] shows the power of using a computeralgebra program to study dynamical systems, and, by giving so many worked examples, provides ample opportunity for experiments. [It] is well written and a pleasure to read, which is helped by its attention to historicalbackground. Mathematical Reviews (Review of First Edition) Since the first edition of this book w as published in 2001, Maple has evolved from Maple V into Maple 13. Accordingly, this new edition has been thoroughly updated andexpanded to include more applications, examples, and exercises, all with solutions two new chapters on neural networks and sim ulation have also been added. There are also new sections on perturbation methods, normal forms, Grbnerbases, and chaos synchronization. The work provides an introduction to the theory of dynamical systems with the aid of Maple. The author has emphasized breadth of coverage rather than fine detail, and theorems with proof are kept to aminimum. Some of the topics treated are scarcely covered elsewhere. Common themes such as bifurcation, bistability, chaos, instability, multistability, and periodicity run t hrough several chapters. The book has a hands-on approach,using Maple as a pedagogical tool throughout. Maple worksheet files are listed at the end of each chapter, and along with commands, programs, and output may be viewed in color at the authors websit e.

Note:Establishing a new concept of local Lyapunov exponents the author brings together two separate theories, namely Lyapunov exponents and the theory of large deviations. Specifically, a linear differential system is considered whichis controlled by a st ochastic process that during a suitable noise-intensity-dependent time is trapped near one of its so-called metastable states. The local Lyapunov exponent is then introduced as the exponential growth rate of thelinear system on this time scale. Unlike cla ssical Lyapunov exponents, which involve a limit as time increases to infinity in a fixed system, here the system itself changes as the noise intensity converges, too

Note:This work examines viability theory and its applications to control theory and differential games. The emphasis is on the construction of feedbacks and dynamical systems by myopic optimization methods. Systems of first-orderpartial differential inclu sions, whose solutions are feedbacks, are constructed and investigated. Basic results are then extended to the case of fuzzy control problems, distributed control problems, and control systems with delays andmemory. Aimed at graduate students and research mathematicians, both pure and applied, this book offers specialists in control and nonlinear systems tools to take into account general state constraints.

Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text presents mathematical biology as a field with a unity of its own, rather than only the intrusion of one science into another. It updates an earlier successful edition and greatly expands the concept of the computerbiology laboratory, giving students a general perspective of the field before proceeding to more specialized topics. The book focuses on problems of contemporary interest, such as cancer, genetics, and the rapidly growing field ofgenomics. It includes new chapters on parasites, ca ncer, and phylogenetics, along with an introduction to online resources for DNA, protein lookups, and popular pattern matching tools such as BLAST. In addition, the emerging field ofalgebraic statistics is introduced and its power illustrated in the conte xt of phylogenetics. A unique feature of the book is the integration of a computer algebra system into the flow of ideas in a supporting but unobtrusive role.Syntax for both the Maple and Matlab systems is provided in a tandem format. The use of a compute r algebra system gives the students the opportunity to examine what if scenarios, allowing them to investigate biological systems in away never before possible. For students without access to Maple or Matlab, each topic presented is complete. Graphic visu alizations are provided for all mathematical results. Mathematical Biology includes extensive exercises, problemsand examples. A year of calculus with linear algebra is required to understand the material presented. The biology presented proceeds from the study of populations down to the molecular level no previous coursework in biology isnecessary. The book is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students studying mathematics or biology and for scientists and researchers who wish to study the appli cations of mathematics and computers in the natural sciences

Note:Based on lecture notes of two summer schools with a mixed audience from mathematical sciences, epidemiology and public health, this volume offers a comprehensive introduction to basic ideas and techniques in modeling infectiousdiseases, for the compa rison of strategies to plan for an anticipated epidemic or pandemic, and to deal with a disease outbreak in real time. It covers detailed case studies for diseases including pandemic influenza, West Nile virus,and childhood diseases. Models for other dise ases including Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, fox rabies, and sexually transmitted infections are included as applications. Its chapters are coherent and complementary independent units.In order to accustom students to look at the current literature a nd to experience different perspectives, no attempt has been made to achieve united writing style or unified notation. Notes on some mathematical background (calculus,matrix algebra, differential equations, and probability) have been prepared and may be d ownloaded at the web site of the Centre for Disease Modeling (www.cdm.yorku.ca )

Note:Random trees and tree-valued stochastic processes are of particular importance in combinatorics, computer science, phylogenetics, and mathematical population genetics. Using the framework of abstract tree-like metric spaces(so-called real trees) and ideas from metric geometry such as the Gromov-Hausdorff distance, Evans and his collaborators have recently pioneered an approach to studying the asymptotic behaviour of such objects when the number ofvertices goes to infinity. These notes survey the rele vant mathematical background and present some selected applications of the theory

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Behind genetics and Markov chains, there is an intrinsic algebraic structure. It is defined as a type of new algebra: as evolution algebra. This concept lies between algebras and dynamical systems. Algebraically, evolutionalgebras are non-associative Banach algebras dynamically, they represent discrete dynamical systems. Evolution algebras have many connections with other mathematical fields including graph theory, group theory, stochastic processes,dynamical systems, knot theory, 3-manifolds, and th e study of the Ihara-Selberg zeta function. In this volume the foundation of evolution algebra theory and applications in non-Mendelian genetics and Markov chains is developed, withpointers to some further research topics

Note:A major challenge in the modeling and simulation of tumor growth is the mathematical description of living matter, which is far more complex than a mathematical description of inert matter. One critical piece of this challenge iscreating multiscale m odels that take into account subcellular, cellular, and macroscopic levels of cancer. The complexity of these different levels requires the development of new mathematical methods and ideas, which are examined inthis work. Written by first-rate researcher s in the field of mathematical biology, this collection of selected chapters offers a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art mathematical methods and tools for modeling and analyzingcancer phenomena. Topics covered include: * Genetic and epigenetic pa thways to colon cancer * A game theoretical perspective on the somatic evolution of cancer * Nonlinear modeling and simulation of tumor growth * Tumor cords and theirresponse to anticancer agents * Modeling diffusely invading brain tumors * Multiphase mod els of tumor growth * Mathematical modeling of breast carcinogenesis * Predictive models in tumor immunology * Multiscale modeling of solid tumorgrowth Selected Topics in Cancer Modeling is an excellent reference for researchers, practitioners, and gradua te students in applied mathematics, mathematical biology, and related fields. The book has an overall aim of quantitative,predictive mathematical modeling of solid tumor growth at all scales, from genetics all the way through to treatment therapy for pati ents

Title:Probability Models for DNA Sequence Evolution [electronic resource]
Author(s): Richard Durrett
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:How is genetic variability shaped by natural selection, demographic factors, and random genetic drift? To approach this question, we introduce and analyze a number of probability models beginning with the basics, and ending at thefrontiers of current research. Throughout the book, the theory is developed in close connection with examples from the biology literature that illustrate the use of these results. Along the way, there are many numerical examples andgraphs to illustrate the conclusions. This is the second edition and is twice the size of the first one. The material on recombination and the stepping stone model have been greatly expanded, there are many results form the last fiveyears, and two new chapters on diffusion processes develop that v iewpoint. This book is written for mathematicians and for biologists alike. No previous knowledge of concepts from biology is assumed, and only a basic knowledge ofprobability, including some familiarity with Markov chains and Poisson processes. The book has been restructured into a large number of subsections and written in a theorem-proof style, to more clearly highlight the main results andallow readers to find the results they need and to skip the proofs if they desire. Rick Durrett received his Ph.D. in operations research from Stanford University in 1976. He taught in the UCLA mathematics department before coming toCornell in 1985. He is the author of eight books and 160 research papers, most of which concern the use of probability models in genetic s and ecology. He is the academic father of 39 Ph.D. students and was recently elected to theNational Academy of Sciences

Note:Although some examples of phase portraits of quadratic systems can already be found in the work of Poincar, the first paper dealing exclusively with these systems was published by Bchel in 1904. By the end of the 20th centuryan increasing flow of pub lications resulted in nearly a thousand papers on the subject. This book attempts to give a presentation of the advance of our knowledge of phase portraits of quadratic systems, paying special attention to thehistorical development of the subject. The boo k organizes the portraits into classes, using the notions of finite and infinite multiplicity and finite and infinite index. Classifications of phase portraits for various classes are givenusing the well-known methods of phase plane analysis.

Note:This book describes the evolution of several socio-biological systems using mathematical kinetic theory. Specifically, it deals with modeling and simulations of biological systemscomprised of large populations of interactingcellswhose dynamics follow the rules of mechanics as well as rules governed by their own ability to organize movement and biological functions. The authors propose a new biological model for the analysis of competition between cellsof an aggressive host and cells of a correspondin g immune system. Because the microscopic description of a biological system is far more complex than that of a physical system of inert matter, a higher level of analysis is needed todeal with such complexity. Mathematical models using kinetic theory may represent a way to deal with such complexity, allowing for an understanding of phenomena of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics not described by the traditionalmacroscopic approach. The proposed models are related to the generalized Boltzmann equation an d describe the population dynamics of several interacting elements (kinetic population models). The particular models proposed by the authorsare based on a framework related to a system of integro-differential equations, defining the evolution of the dist ribution function over the microscopic state of each element in a given system. Macroscopic information on the behaviorof the system is obtained from suitable moments of the distribution function over the microscopic states of the elements involved. The b ook follows a classical research approach applied to modeling real systems, linking the observationof biological phenomena, collection of experimental data, modeling, and computational simulations to validate the proposed models. Qualitative analysis tech niques are used to identify the prediction ability of specific models. The bookwill be a valuable resource for applied mathematicians as well as researchers in the field of biological sciences. It

Title:Statistical Methods in Molecular Evolution [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the field of molecular evolution, inferences about past evolutionary events are made using molecular data from currently living species. With the availability of genomic data from multiple related species, molecular evolutionhas become one of the most active and fastest growing fields of study in genomics and bioinformatics. Most studies in molecular evolution rely heavily on statistical procedures based on stochastic process modelling and advancedcomputational methods including high-dimensional n umerical optimization and Markov Chain Monte Carlo. This book provides an overview of the statistical theory and methods used in studies of molecular evolution. It includes anintroductory section suitable for readers that are new to the field, a section d iscussing practical methods for data analysis, and more specialized sections discussing specific models and addressing statistical issues relating toestimation and model choice. The chapters are written by the leaders in the field and they will take the r eader from basic introductory material to the state-of the-art statistical methods. This book is suitable for statisticiansseeking to learn more about applications in molecular evolution and molecular evolutionary biologists with an interest in learning m ore about the theory behind the statistical methods applied in the field. The chapters of the bookassume no advanced mathematical skills beyond basic calculus, although familiarity with basic probability theory will help the reader. Most relevant statisti cal concepts are introduced in the book in the context of their application inmolecular evolution, and the book should be accessible for most biology graduate students with an interest in quantitative methods and theory. Rasmus Nielsen received his Ph.D. form the University of California at Berkeley in 1998 andafter a postdoc at Harvard University, he assumed a faculty position in Statistical Genomics at Cornell University. He is currently an Ole Rmer
