Applied Math Seminar: On Demographic Heterogeneity and Persistence
3:10 pm, Neill Hall 3W
ABSTRACT: We consider the question of how demographic heterogeneity in genotypes affects the persistence of such a population. We use a branching process model to help get an idea of these effects. In this talk we will introduce this question and the branching process model approach, discuss the various setups explored using this model, and present some results.
