Fluctuations of animal populations and a measure of community stability

Ecology, Vol. 36, No. 3. (1 July 1955), pp. 533-536,


[Excerpt] Three assumptions will be made and a conclusion will be deduced from these. Since the conclusion is not always correct, it mill be justifiable to conclude that one or more of the assumptions is responsible. First, temporarily assume that the amount of energy entering the community (at the lowest trophic level, of course) does not vary with time. Second, assume that the length of time that energy is retained by a species before being passed on to the next doesn't change ...


Maryam Mirzakhani (1977–2017)

Science, Vol. 357, No. 6353. (25 August 2017), pp. 758-758,


On 14 July, Maryam Mirzakhani, a luminary in pure mathematics, died of cancer at the age of 40. Her achievements had been most recently honored in 2014 by the Fields Medal, the most prestigious award in mathematics. [Excerpt] [...] There are many possible uniformly curved shapes into which the surface can be bent. These shapes are called hyperbolic metrics and exhibit the non-Euclidean geometry discovered in the 1800s after 2000 years of attempts to prove its nonexistence. The plethora of all possible ...

Habitat suitability modelling and niche theory

Journal of Applied Ecology, Vol. 45, No. 5. (1 October 2008), pp. 1372-1381,


The concept of the ecological niche relates a set of environmental variables to the fitness of species, while habitat suitability models (HSMs) relate environmental variables to the likelihood of occurrence of the species. In spite of this relationship, the concepts are weakly linked in the literature, and there is a strong need for better integration. [\n] We selectively reviewed the literature for habitat suitability studies that directly addressed four common facets of niche theory: niche characteristics, niche interactions, community-wide processes and ...


Interactive comment on "Perturbation experiments to investigate the impact of ocean acidification: approaches and software tools" by J.-P. Gattuso and H. Lavigne

Biogeosciences Discussions, Vol. 6 (2009), pp. C1071-C1073


[Excerpt] The referee wonders whether this manuscript should be published as a technical note rather than as a scientific article […][and] feels that the functions described are “black boxes”. We cannot disagree more with this statement as [the software tool] is free software, the source code of which is available to anyone (one just needs to download the package). Further, [the software tool] can be redistributed and/or modified under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the ...


Variations of Non-Additive Measures

Acta Polytechnica Hungarica, Vol. 2, No. 1. (2005)
edited by Imre J. Rudas


General non-additive measures are investigated with the help of some related monotone measures (some types of variations and submeasures), which have some important additional properties. ...


Multi-scale robust modelling of landslide susceptibility: regional rapid assessment and catchment robust fuzzy ensemble

IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology, Vol. 413 (2013), pp. 321-335,


Landslide susceptibility assessment is a fundamental component of effective landslide prevention. One of the main challenges in landslides forecasting is the assessment of spatial distribution of landslide susceptibility. Despite the many different approaches, landslide susceptibility assessment still remains a challenge. A semi-quantitative method is proposed combining heuristic, deterministic and probabilistic approaches for a robust catchment scale assessment. A fuzzy ensemble model has been exploited for aggregating an array of different susceptibility zonation maps. Each susceptibility zonation has been obtained by applying ...


Six myths about mathematical modeling in geomorphology

Geophysical Monograph Series, Vol. 135 (2003), pp. 63-79,


Geomorphologists, geologists and hydrologists have always used models. Unfortunately an artificial schism between modelers and experimentalists (or "observationalists") commonly exists in our fields. This schism is founded on bias, misinterpretation, and myth. The schism is perpetuated by misuse and misrepresentation of data and models. In this paper we have tried to address six of those myths and illustrate, mostly with our experiences, why we think mathematical models are useful and necessary tools of the trade. First we argue for a broad ...


Event erosivity factor and errors in erosion predictions by some empirical models

Australian Journal of Soil Research, Vol. 41, No. 5. (2003), pp. 991-1003,


Analyses undertaken in this paper show that the Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) tends to overestimate low values of soil loss when the soil surface has a high capacity to infiltrate rainfall, but the degree of overestimation falls as the capacity of the soil to produce runoff increases. The USLE-M, a version of the USLE that uses the product of the runoff ratio and the EI30 as the event erosivity index, is more efficient in estimating soil loss because runoff is ...


On the explanatory role of mathematics in empirical science

The British Journal for the Philosophy of Science, Vol. 61, No. 1. (01 March 2010), pp. 1-25,


This paper examines contemporary attempts to explicate the explanatory role of mathematics in the physical sciences. Most such approaches involve developing so-called mapping accounts of the relationships between the physical world and mathematical structures. The paper argues that the use of idealizations in physical theorizing poses serious difficulties for such mapping accounts. A new approach to the applicability of mathematics is proposed. ...


Program verification and functioning of operative computing revisited: how about mathematics engineering?

Minds and Machines In Minds and Machines, Vol. 21, No. 2. (3 February 2011), pp. 337-359,


The issue of proper functioning of operative computing and the utility of program verification, both in general and of specific methods, has been discussed a lot. In many of those discussions, attempts have been made to take mathematics as a model of knowledge and certitude achieving, and accordingly infer about the suitable ways to handle computing. I shortly review three approaches to the subject, and then take a stance by considering social factors which affect the epistemic status of both mathematics ...


Algorithm Engineering - An Attempt at a Definition

In Efficient Algorithms, Vol. 5760 (2009), pp. 321-340,


This paper defines algorithm engineering as a general methodology for algorithmic research. The main process in this methodology is a cycle consisting of algorithm design, analysis, implementation and experimental evaluation that resembles Popper’s scientific method. Important additional issues are realistic models, algorithm libraries, benchmarks with real-world problem instances, and a strong coupling to applications. Algorithm theory with its process of subsequent modelling, design, and analysis is not a competing approach to algorithmics but an important ingredient of algorithm engineering. ...


On the embedding phase of the Hopcroft and Tarjan planarity testing algorithm

In Algorithmica, Vol. 16, No. 2. (1996), pp. 233-242,


We give a detailed description of the embedding phase of the Hopcroft and Tarjan planarity testing algorithm. The embedding phase runs in linear time. An implementation based on this paper can be found in [MMN]. ...


Corrigendum: Corrigendum to "A tailored solver for bifurcation analysis of ocean-climate models" [J. Comput. Phys. 227 (2007) 654-679]

J. Comput. Phys., Vol. 228, No. 13. (20 July 2009), pp. 4962-4964,


This corrigendum contains a correction to some of the results in the article ‘‘A tailored solver for bifurcation analysis of ocean-climate models” [2], in which it was demonstrated how the specific mathematical structure of the equations govern- ing oceanic flow can be exploited to build an efficient linear system solver for use in a continuation method. Compared to earlier work (e.g. [4]), an additional novelty was the implementation of the small slope approximation to Redi [3] isoneutral diffusion and Gent–McWilliams [1] ...
