Mathematical modeling and analysis of nonlocal ecological invasions and savanna population dynamics, The
The main focus of this dissertation is the development and analysis of two new mathematical models that individually address major open problems in ecology. The first challenge is to characterize and model the processes that result in a savanna ecosystem as a stable state between grassland and forest, and the second involves modeling the non-local spread of a biological invader over heterogeneous terrain while incorporating the influence of a mass transportation network on the system. Both models utilize and compare work done in other, often more opaque, modeling paradigms to better develop ...
