Some unresolved issued in non-linear population dynamics.

Joe N. Perry (1997)



The Lyapunov exponent is a statistic that measures the sensitive dependence of the dynamic behaviour of a system on its initial conditions. Estimates of Lyapunov exponents are often used to characterize the qualitative population dynamics of insect time series. The methodology for estimation of the exponent for an observed, noisy, short ecological time series is still under development. Some progress has been made recently in providing measures of error for these exponents. Studies that...

Population changes as litmus paper of the socio-economic development level of small towns in Poland

Agnieszka Kwiatek-Sołtys (2015)

Annales Universitatis Paedagogicae Cracoviensis Studia Geographica


The main aim of the author was to analyse the population changes of small towns in Poland between 2002 and 2012. Small towns’ reaction to the global and regional demographic trends confirms their position between the rural areas and the urban municipalities. The differences between separate towns are significant, however those located within the metropolitan areas in Poland show a positive population dynamics, natural growth and migration balance net indexes. The image of small towns...
