Generalized gradient structures for measure-valued population dynamics and their large-population limit

  title={Generalized gradient structures for measure-valued population dynamics and their large-population limit},
  author={Jasper Hoeksema and Oliver Tse},
We consider the forward Kolmogorov equation corresponding to measure-valued processes stemming from a class of interacting particle systems in population dynamics, including variations of the Bolker-Pacala-Dieckmann-Law model. Under the assumption of detailed balance, we provide a rigorous generalized gradient structure, incorporating the fluxes arising from the birth and death of the particles. Moreover, in the large population limit, we show convergence of the forward Kolmogorov equation to a…

On microscopic origins of generalized gradient structures

Classical gradient systems have a linear relation between rates and driving forces. In generalized gradient systems we allow for arbitrary relations derived from general non-quadratic dissipation

The statistical dynamics of a spatial logistic model and the related kinetic equation

There is studied an infinite system of point entities in $\mathbb{R}^d$ which reproduce themselves and die, also due to competition. The system's states are probability measures on the space of

A variational structure for interacting particle systems and their hydrodynamic scaling limits

We consider hydrodynamic scaling limits for a class of reversible interacting particle systems, which includes the symmetric simple exclusion process and certain zero-range processes. We study a

A route to the hydrodynamic limit of a reaction-diffusion master equation using gradient structures

The reaction-diffusion master equation (RDME) is a lattice-based stochastic model for spatially resolved cellular processes. It is often interpreted as an approximation to spatially continuous

This work considers gradient structures for the Becker–Döring equation and its macroscopic limits. The result of Niethammer [J. Nonlinear Sci. 13 (2003) 115–122] is extended to prove the convergence

Jump processes as generalized gradient flows

We have created a functional framework for a class of non-metric gradient systems. The state space is a space of nonnegative measures, and the class of systems includes the Forward Kolmogorov

Large deviations for singularly interacting diffusions

In this paper we prove a large deviation principle (LDP) for the empirical measure of a general system of mean-field interacting diffusions with singular drift (as the number of particles tends to

Gradient flow structure for McKean-Vlasov equations on discrete spaces

In this work, we show that a family of non-linear mean-field equations on discrete spaces can be viewed as a gradient flow of a natural free energy functional with respect to a certain metric

Fluctuation Theory in the Boltzmann–Grad Limit

We develop a rigorous theory of hard-sphere dynamics in the kinetic regime, away from thermal equilibrium. In the low density limit, the empirical density obeys a law of large numbers and the
