Branching Processes by Patsy Haccou

Book Description

Biology takes a special place among the other natural sciences because biological units, be they pieces of DNA, cells or organisms, reproduce more or less faithfully. As for any other biological processes, reproduction has a large random component. The theory of branching processes was developed especially as a mathematical counterpart to this most fundamental of biological processes. This active and rich research area allows us to make predictions about both extinction risks and the development of population composition, and also uncovers aspects of a population's history from its current genetic composition. Branching processes play an increasingly important role in models of genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, ecology and evolutionary theory. This book presents this body of mathematical ideas for a biological audience, but should also be enjoyable to mathematicians.

Branching Processes by Patsy Haccou Branching Processes, Hardback (May 2005)

This book covers the mathematical idea of branching processes, and tailors it for a biological audience.

Statistical Analysis of Behavioural Data by Patsy Haccou Statistical Analysis of Behavioural Data, Paperback (March 1994)

Now available in paperback, this guide explains how to use sophisticated statistical methods in the analysis of continuous-time records of behaviour. This approach is explicity designed to handle sequential or simultaneous acts where neither the duration nor the sequence is predetermined.
