Adaptive Dynamics for Spatially Structured Populations
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
The impact of spatial structure on evolutionary processes is examined by using partial differential equation models coupled with adaptive dynamics analysis. A brief introduction to adaptive dynamics is provided, where the central concepts of the framework are explained. The formalism of spatial adaptive dynamics is detailed, and perturbation methods for improving numerical calculations are introduced. Two example models are investigated, and the applicability of the framework is discussed.
