Main Course

C1: Dynamics and Bifurcations in Predator-Prey Systems

Speaker: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Johan Matheus Tuwankotta 

Abstract: In this lecture, we will discuss the predator-prey type of dynamical systems. Variation of the model is introduced into the system by including the carrying capacity of the environment, competition among predators etc. Furthermore, we will also discuss the role of the response function that measures the predation. We will then introduce time-variation in the carrying capacity to model the seasonal behaviour in the system. We will focus on studying the dynamics and bifurcation as well as describing complex dynamics due to the bifurcation of periodic solution in the system.


C2: Recent Research in Dynamical System and Related Topics

Speaker: Prof. Dr.  Salmi Md. Noorani

Abstract: This course will focus on some recent research in the fields of dynamical systems, ergodic theory, synchronisation and other related areas in mathematics. We will review these different topics of research and provide necessary details in term of their theoretical and computational backgrounds. We will also discuss some potential future work that can be further explored in these areas.    


C3: Coupling Different Modelling Approaches in the Study of Competition Ecosystems

Speaker: Dr. Nguyen Ngoc Doanh

Abstract: This course focuses on coupling some existing modelling approaches, such as Equation-Based Modelling (EBM), Individual-Based Modelling (IBM) and Graph-Based Modelling (GBM), in order to investigate competition ecosystems which is the most popular systems in ecology. Each modelling approach has its own strengths and weaknesses. Coupling them allows us to promote their advantages and use them in effective ways. The coupling will therefore be able to provide deep understandings about dynamical behaviours of reference systems. This course consists of a series of lectures/tutorials/case studies working group.


C4: Dynamical Systems Analysis for Fractional Differential Equations

Speaker: Dr. Doan Thai Son

Abstract: This course introduces some fundamental aspects of the qualitative theory of fractional differential equations including the existence and uniqueness of solutions, the Lyapunov spectrum, the linearized asymptotic stability/instability theory and the invariant manifold theory.


C5: Dynamics and Bifurcations in Lotka-Volterra Type Systems

Speaker: Dr. Kie Van Ivanky Saputra

Abstract: Interaction between populations and interactions of the populations with the environment are typically highly nonlinear. Thus, mathematical models become important tools to establish the factors underlying the temporal changes in the abundance of natural population. This short course is intended to give an introduction to the mathematical analysis of Lotka-Volterra population models. We will begin by studying in detail some examples of two species models, before moving on to general population models for the interactions of n species. In the latter part, we will study systems of differential equations of Rn of the form  where ei serves as a constant term. We will employ bifurcation analysis to analyse such system.
