Rates of convergence in a central limit theorem for stochastic processes defined by differential equations with a small parameter

Kouritzin, Michael, Heunis, A.J.
Let μ be a positive finite Borel measure on the real line R. For t ≥ 0 let et · E1 and E2 denote, respectively, the linear spans in L2(R, μ) of {eisx, s > t} and {eisx, s < 0}. Let θ: R → C such that ∥θ∥ = 1, denote by αt(θ, μ) the angle between θ · et · E1 and E2. The problems considered here...

Consider the following random ordinary differential equation: X˙ϵ(τ)=F(Xϵ(τ),τ/ϵ,ω)subject toXϵ(0)=x0, where {F(x,t,ω),t≥0} are stochastic processes indexed by x in Rd, and the dependence on x is sufficiently regular to ensure that the equation has a unique solution Xϵ(τ,ω) over the interval...

In this note we consider the almost sure convergence (as ϵ→0) of solution Xϵ(·), defined over the interval 0 ≤ τ ≤ 1, of the random ordinary differential equation View the MathML source Here {F(x, t, ω), t ≥ 0} is a strong mixing process for each x and (x, t) → F(x, t, ω) is subject to regularity...

Suppose {εk, −∞ < k < ∞} is an independent, not necessarily identically distributed sequence of random variables, and {cj}∞j=0, {dj}∞j=0 are sequences of real numbers such that Σjc2j < ∞, Σjd2j < ∞. Then, under appropriate moment conditions on {εk, −∞ < k < ∞}, View the MathML source, View the...

Irregularities in observed population densities have traditionally been attributed to discretization of the underlying dynamics. We propose an alternative explanation by demonstrating the evolution of spatiotemporal chaos in reactiondiffusion models for predatorprey interactions. The chaos is...

Dispersal, Population Growth, and the Allee Effect: Dynamics of the House Finch Invasion of Eastern North America
Download19960101
Since about 1940, when they were first released in the new York City area, house finches (Carpodacus mexicanus) have multiplied explosively and colonized much of eastern North America. We take advantage of the richly detailed documentation of this biological invasion to construct a mathematical...

A general Hilbertspacebased stochastic averaging theory is brought forth herein for arbitraryorder parabolic equations with (possibly long range dependent) random coefficients. We use regularity conditions onView the MathML sourcewhich are slightly stronger than those required to prove...

Herein, an averaging theory for the solutions to Cauchy initial value problems of arbitrary order,εdependent parabolic partial differential equations is developed. Indeed, by directly developing bounds between the derivatives of the fundamental solution to such an equation and derivatives of the...

For populations having dispersal described by fat‐tailed kernels (kernels with tails that are not exponentially bounded), asymptotic population spread rates cannot be estimated by traditional models because these models predict continually accelerating (asymptotically infinite) invasion. The...

Observations on Mount St Helens indicate that the spread of recolonizing lupin plants has been slowed due to the presence of insect herbivores and it is possible that the spread of lupins could be reversed in the future by intense insect herbivory [Fagan, W. F. and J. Bishop (2000). Trophic...
