We study the nonequilibrium steady state realized in a general stochastic system attached to multiple heat baths. Starting from the detailed fluctuation theorem, we derive concise and suggestive expressions for the corresponding stationary distribution which are correct up to the second order in thermodynamic forces. The probability of a microstate eta is(More)
We study traffic congestion by analyzing a one dimensional traffic flow model. Developing an asymptotic method to investigate the long time behavior near a critical point, we derive the modified Korteweg-de Vries (mKdV) equation as the lowest order model. There are an infinite number of kink solitons to the mKdV equation, while it has been found by(More)
Recently a novel concise representation of the probability distribution of heat conducting nonequilibrium steady states was derived. The representation is valid to the second order in the " degree of nonequilibrium " , and has a very suggestive form where the effective Hamiltonian is determined by the excess entropy production. Here we extend the(More)
Marine fish generally show higher genetic diversity and shallower population structure than freshwater fish, but data for rare species are lacking. A latid fish, akame (Lates japonicus), is a rare, large predatory fish endemic to Japan, occurring mainly in the estuaries and coastal waters of Kochi and Miyazaki prefectures. Among species of Lates, akame is(More)
We investigate collective motion in high dimensional chaos, where all elements in a population behaves chaotically and incoherently in appearance. Numerical experiments for globally coupled tent maps show the existence of a quasi-periodic collective motion even under slight interaction. It is found that the amplitude of the collective motion F is scaled as,(More)
Floating seaweeds play an important role as a habitat for many animals accompanying or attaching to them in offshore waters. It was in 2000 that the first report described abundant distributions of floating seaweeds in offshore waters in the East China Sea in spring. Young individuals of the yellowtail Seriola quinqueradiata are captured for aquaculture(More)
Floating seaweeds play important ecological roles in offshore waters. Recently, large amounts of rafting seaweed have been observed in the East China Sea. In early spring, juveniles of commercially important fish such as yellowtail accompany these seaweed rafts. Because the spatial distributions of seaweed rafts in the spring are poorly understood, research(More)
The feeding events of wild animals have been widely researched in recent decades. The use of invasive methods to determine stomach contents in which the fish is killed can, however, be considered to be unjustifiable in the case of an endangered fish, such as the Japanese late. Here, we report on a method that can be used to verify feeding events of a fish(More)
Sargassum horneri is one of the most important contributors to the rafts of floating seaweed in the waters off the coasts of northeastern Asia. These rafts serve as spawning and nursery grounds for many marine organisms, including Japanese saury and yellowtail. Thus, the details of the attachment/detachment mechanisms of S. horneri are of commercial(More)
