CMS Special Session: Dynamical systems and spatial models in ecology
June 1, 2018 - June 4, 2018
Our special session on “Dynamical Systems and Spatial Models in Ecology” at the Canadian Mathematics Society meeting in Fredericton will feature 12 researchers from Atlantic Canada (including Dalhousie University, Memorial University, the University of New Brunswick and the University of Prince Edward Island) alongside researchers from other parts of Canada and the United States. The special session will explore recent theoretical advances and novel applications of ecological theory, with an emphasis on integrodifference equations, analyses to characterize threshold conditions for ecological persistence, and the calculation of spreading speeds. With a combination of biologically and mathematically motivated talks, the goal of this session is to inspire new applications of theory and to highlight the broad applicability and relevance of analyses at the forefront of applied mathematics.
