Standard models of population dynamics focus on the interaction, survival, and extinction of the competing species individually. Real ecological systems, however, are characterized by an abundance of species (or strategies, in the terminology of evolutionary-game theory) that form intricate, complex interaction networks. The description of the ensuing dynamics may be aided by studying associations of certain strategies rather than individual ones. Here we show how such a higher-level…

Interface networks in models of competing species
All the results provided by the soliton topological model are in agreement with the stochastic simulations and may be used as a tool for understanding the complex biodiversity in nature.
Mesoscopic Interactions and Species Coexistence in Evolutionary Game Dynamics of Cyclic Competitions
A mean-field theory is developed to show that, in order to understand the first transition, group interactions at the mesoscopic scale must be taken into account, and suggest the importance of mesoscopic interactions in coexistence of great many species.
Spirals and coarsening patterns in the competition of many species: A complex Ginzburg-Landau approach
For large classes of systems the space of coexistence fixed points at which biodiversity is maximal is determined, starting from the deterministic mean-field rate equations, and complex Ginzburg-Landau equations are derived that allow for space-time pattern realized in two space dimensions.
Multiscale Structure in Eco-Evolutionary Dynamics
This thesis presents a mathematical formalism for multiscale structure, grounded in information theory, which makes these intuitions quantitative, and shows how dynamics defined in terms of population genetics or evolutionary game theory can lead to multiscales organization.
Emergence of unusual coexistence states in cyclic game systems
This work investigates the effect of nonuniform intraspecific competitions on coexistence and finds that a wider spectrum of coexistence states can emerge and persist and indicates that intraspecities can promote biodiversity to a broader extent than previously thought.
Stochastic population dynamics in spatially extended predator-prey systems
Stochastic spatial variants of cyclic competition with rock-paper-scissors interactions illustrate connections between population dynamics and evolutionary game theory, and demonstrate how space can help maintain diversity.
A Five Species Cyclically Dominant Evolutionary Game with Fixed Direction: A New Way to Produce Self-Organized Spatial Patterns
In this paper, a five-strategy cyclically dominant system is constructed and the emergence of spiral waves on spatial patterns without a migration rate is found, which suggests a new way to produce self-organized spatial patterns.
A theoretical approach to understand spatial organization in complex ecologies.


Introduction to Population Biology
The author states that animal behaviour, natural selection and altruistic traits, as well as interactions between Species, and the Behaviour of Individuals, are important sources of inspiration for future generations of scientists.
Evolution and the Theory of Games
It is beginning to become clear that a range of problems in evolution theory can most appropriately be attacked by a modification of the theory of games, a branch of mathematics first formulated by Von Neumann and Morgenstern in 1944 for the analysis of human conflicts.

The abstract should concisely summarize the basic content of the paper without presenting extensive experimental details and use only those references required to provide the most salient background rather than an exhaustive review of the topic.
