Principal academic interests:

·         ecological models and dynamics – involving the construction and analysis of mathematical models of food webs and ecosystems, and the application of methods of nonlinear mechanics and computer simulations to elucidate their dynamic and steady state properties.  A recent product of this work is an electronic bookEcological Models and Dynamics, an interactive textbookpublished as a CD with a print supplement by Garland Science, Taylor and Francis Group, 2009.  For purchase and additional information, click on this link:  http://www.garlandscience.com/textbooks/0815344260.asp

 

Problems with two executable files in Chapter 3, reported by some users, can be solved either by

(1)   clicking on the links below to download workable versions.

CompetitorsPplane  or

(2)   downloading LabVIEW Run-Time Engine 6.1 from http://joule.ni.com/nidu/cds/view/p/id/746/laug/en .  This requires installing Run-Time Engine 6.1 in addition to installing the Run-Time Engine supplied on the CD.

 

·         environmental systems – particularly the development of instructional modules based on mathematical models and simulations.  A recently completed module, aimed at upperclass students in engineering or science fields, deals with the earth’s carbon cycle.  It’s available in interactive format on a CD, which I’ll provide upon email request (without charge – for the time being, at least) to anyone who would like to examine it.
