Plenary Lecture 3: Individual-level models, demographic stochasticity and spatio-temporal variations in microbial populations

Presented by: 
N Goldenfeld University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Date: 
Thursday 30th October 2014 - 11:25 to 11:55
Venue: 
INI Seminar Room 1
Abstract: 
I will review recent work for modeling populations from the individual-level, using statistical mechanics to obtain a description at the population level. Topics that will be briefly covered within the time available are (1) Quasi-Turing patterns in plankton-herbivore systems and biofilms; (2) Rapid evolution and anomalous population cycles in rotifer-algae chemostats.

This work has been performed in collaboration with Tom Butler, Hong-Yan Shih and K. Michael Martini, and partially supported by the US National Science Foundation.
