The aim of the talk is to demonstrate how to use a reaction diffusion equation to model a species dynamics with its environment, and how we can use the movement operator to approximate these dynamics through mean occupancy times.
Approximating steady states and persistence conditions of ecological dynamics using mean occupancy times.

This presentation provides an overview of math/stat-related challenges related to analyzing performance of biometric systems. Examples of iris- and face-recognition systems such as the ones used for automated border control are used to illustrate the problem.
