Evolutionary computation in zoology and ecology | Current Zoology | Oxford Academic

fields. The method is growing in use in zoology and ecology. Evolutionary principles may be merged with an agent-based modeling perspective to have individual animals or other agents compete. Four main ... ecology, the methods are less often used in ecology and zoology (e.g., Alander 1994) . Many problems in ecology are certainly more complex than in engineering, and there is an appreciation for the ability

Zoology of condensed matter: framids, ordinary stuff, extra-ordinary stuff

We classify condensed matter systems in terms of the spacetime symmetries they spontaneously break. In particular, we characterize condensed matter itself as any state in a Poincaré-invariant theory that spontaneously breaks Lorentz boosts while preserving at large distances some form of spatial translations, time-translations, and possibly spatial rotations. Surprisingly, the...
