Yijun Lou--Population dynamics with seasonal developmental durations: model formulation, analysis and simulation
发布人:管理员LIU  发布时间:2016-12-23   浏览次数:489


Abstract:There is a growing body of biological investigations to understand impacts of seasonally changing environmental conditions on population dynamics in various research fields such as single population growth and disease transmission. On the other side, understanding the population dynamics subject to seasonally changing weather conditions plays a fundamental role in predicting the trends of population patterns and disease transmission risks under the scenarios of climate change. With the host-macroparasite interaction as a motivating example, in this talk I am going to propose a synthesised approach for investigating the population dynamics subject to seasonal environmental variations from theoretical point of view, where the model development, basic reproduction ratio formulation and computation, and rigorous mathematical analysis are involved. The resultant model with periodic delay presents a novel term related to the rate of  change of the developmental duration, bringing new challenges to dynamics analysis.  By investigating a periodic semiflow on a suitably chosen phase space, the global dynamics of a threshold type is established: all solutions either go to zero when basic reproduction ratio is less than one, or stabilise at a positive periodic state when the reproduction ratio is greater than one. The synthesised approach is expected to apply to broader contexts of investigating biological systems with seasonal developmental durations. This talk is based on joint work with Prof. Xiao-Qiang Zhao.
