Oscillation and Stability of Delay Models in Biology

Environmental version performs a major function in lots of organic and ecological dynamical platforms. This monograph specializes in the examine of oscillation and the soundness of hold up types happening in biology.

So, σ0 = 0 if the integral over h 2 (x) is zero; otherwise σ0 < 0 because D(x) > 0. 59) and using the result we have just derived, l1 + G 2 l2 − γe + λ0 < 0. 54), to be unstable, (1 − γe )l1 ≥ (γe − G 2 )l2 . 65) There are now three relevant cases to consider. Remember that G 2 < 1. In the case when γe > 1 > G 2 the native-dominant steady state is stable in both the favourable and unfavourable patches if they are considered in isolation. Refer again to the above detailed discussion of the stability conditions for either the favourable or unfavourable patches (note that g2 = 1 here).

This corresponds to the ecological situation where the grey squirrels (θ1 ) outcompete the reds (θ2 ) to extinction: it comes into the category of competitive exclusion (cf. Chapter 5, Volume I). 20) where c is the wavespeed. θ1 (z) and θ2 (z) represent wave solutions of constant shape travelling with velocity c in the positive x-direction. 21) subject to the boundary conditions θ1 = 1, θ2 = 0, at z = −∞, θ1 = 0, θ2 = 1, at z = ∞. 22) That is, asymptotically the grey (θ1 ) squirrels drive out the red (θ2 ) squirrels as the wave propagates with speed c, which we still have to determine.

The mathematical techniques developed there are of direct relevance to the above problems. When several ion exchanges are occurring at the same time in this convective situation we then have chromatography, a powerful analytical technique in biochemistry. 3 Competition Model for the Spatial Spread of the Grey Squirrel in Britain Introduction and Some Facts About the beginning of the 20th century North American grey squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) were released from various sites in Britain, the most important of which was in the southeast.
