Events for 24 May 2018

Dr Florian Rupp: Maritime Encounters: A Mathematical Analysis of the Jellyfish Joyride

1:00pm, E245

Dramatic increases in jellyfish populations which lead to the collapse of formerly healthy ecosystems are repeatedly reported from many different sites. Due to their devastating effects on fishery the understanding of the causes for such a blooming is of major ecological as well as economic importance. In this talk we discuss a unified model for fish-jellyfish interactions, and, assuming fish as the dominant predator species, we set-up a combined two species system subject to constant environmental conditions. By totally analytic means we completely classify all biologically relevant equilibria in terms of existence and Lyapunov stability, study their bifurcation behavior, and give a description of this system's non-linear global dynamics supported by numerical simulations. Particular interest is paid to connecting orbits that account for a burst of the jellyfish population after a certain sub-critical Andronov-Hopf bifurcation of a mixed species equilibrium.
