Stability and complexity in ecological systems
The paper attempts to answer an outstanding question in theoretical ecology whether structural complexity is essential for dynamical complexity to exist. Advances in dynamical systems theory and their application to ecosystem ...
Influence of secondary flow on diffusion with heterogeneous reaction
The concentration distribution in a Newtonian fluid for the secondary flow in a curved tube with bulk/wall reaction is obtained for a range of parameter values using an axially marching spectral finite difference scheme. ...
Effect of secondary flows on contaminant dispersion with weak boundary absorption
The present anulysis brings out the interaction of curcature and a weak wall absorption parameter on the dispersion process using Taylor analysis. A perturbation series solution has been obtained to find the values of the ...
How do ecosystems respond to external perturbations?
This paper attempts to study the influence of environmental perturbations on volutionary modes (dynamical regimes) of model ecosystems. Three model systems are analysed and the relative importance of these modes is depicted ...
