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: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

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.

Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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
