Code and data for "Biased correlated random walks and invasive spread: Insights from the alga Codium fragile"
Code and data for "Biased correlated random walks and invasive spread: Insights from the alga Codium fragile"Download
Invasive species are a major threat to global biodiversity. Understanding what influences the spread of invasive species after introduction is key to minimizing impacts on native ecosystems and has been the subject of much applied and theoretical work. Thus far, models of spread have not...
Movement ecology thrives from a successful synergy of data and models. In a field where experiments are difficult or impossible, linking field data with mathematical and statistical models allows us to test hypotheses and increase our quantitative understanding of movement processes. Owing to...
This thesis applies the Monte Carlo Random Walk method (MRW) to motion planning. We explore different global and local restart strategies to improve the performance. Several new algorithms based on the MRW approach, such as bidirectional Arvand and optimizing planner Arvand*, are introduced and...
Many problems in digital image processing and analysis can be interpreted as labeling problems, which aim to find the optimal mapping from a set of sites to a set of labels. A site represents a certain primitive, such as a pixel, while a label represents a certain quantity, such as disparity in...
Quantitative analysis of single particle tracking experiments: applying ecological methods in cellular biologyDownload
Single-particle tracking (SPT) is a method used to study the diffusion of various molecules within the cell. SPT involves tagging proteins with optical labels and observing their individual two-dimensional trajectories with a microscope. The analysis of this data provides important information...
A Social Network or Information Network is a structure made up of nodes representing entities, and edges representing the relationships among nodes. Understanding the behaviour of social networks is known as Social Network Analysis (SNA). One of the most important applications of SNA is to find...
Technical report TR09-02. The significant increase in open access digital information has created incredible opportunities for modern database research, especially in exploiting significant computational resources to determine complex relationships within those data. In this paper, we consider...
