These relations define the binary diffusion coefficient. Equations have been given for the estimation of binary diffusion coefficients for gases, liquids and polymers. On the basis of the generalized mass balances derived the development of mathematical models of mass transfer processes has been discussed. As examples, problems of binary mass. Diffusionism: The Biblical theory of human social origin was taken for granted in Renaissance thought (14 th century th century). The role diffusion played in cultural diversity was acknowledged, but could only be interpreted as the result of cultural decline from an “original Adamic condition” (Hodgen ).The Renaissance conception of a “Great Chain of Being,” the.

The theory was popularized with the general public in Malcolm Gladwell’s bestselling book The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference. According to diffusion theory, behaviors are affected across a community through change agents.

Equally, this is a specialized text book for graduates interested in. The story of this edition is a testament to an almost legendary gure in theoretical ecology and to the in uence his work and charisma has had on the eld.

Abstract. This is a revised and expanded version of Okubo’s classic text Diffusion and Ecological Problems: Mathematical Models [2]. While building on the original text, the revision has brought the subject well into the 21st century: the length has almost doubled and the number of references has tripled; themes hinted at in the original version have been developed and matured.

Reaction-diffusion equations are widely used as models for spatial effects in ecology. They support three important types of ecological phenomena: the existence of a minimal patch size necessary to sustain a population, the propagation of wavefronts corresponding to biological invasions, and the formation of spatial patterns in the distributions of populations in homogeneous environments.

Physicochemical and Environmental Plant Physiology, Fourth Edition, is the updated version of an established and successful reference for plant scientists. The author has taken into consideration extensive reviews performed by colleagues and students who have touted this book as the ultimate reference for research and learning.

Books about or featuring the environment as a prominent theme have proliferated especially since the middle of the twentieth century. The rise of environmental science, which has encouraged interdisciplinary approaches to studying the environment, and the environmental movement, which has increased public and political awareness of humanity's.

This book surveys a wide variety of mathematical models of diffusion in the ecological context. It is written with the primary intent of providing scientists, particularly physicists but also biologists, with some background in the mathematics and physics of diffusion, and shows how they can be applied to ecological problems.

DIFFUSION The Diffusion Equation Formulation As we saw in the previous chapter, the flux of a substance consists of an advective component, due to the mean motion of the carrying fluid, and of a so-called diffusive component, caused by the unresolved random motions of the fluid (molecular agitation and/or turbulence).

and correspondingly the early part of this book has developed from 'Con-duction of heat in solids' by Carslaw and Jaeger. These authors present many solutions of the equation of heat conduction and some of them can be applied to diffusion problems for which the diffusion coefficient is constant.

In geography, the term diffusion refers to the spread of people, things, ideas, cultural practices, disease, technology, weather, and other factors from place to place.

This kind of proliferation is known as spatial diffusion. The three main types of this phenomenon are expansion diffusion, stimulus diffusion, and relocation diffusion.
