· Flux in 2 dimensions:

If there is a chemical reaction:

For biological populations:

Logistic growth:

pmax= carrying

capacity

?

a = initial growth rate

(of population number)

2 human populations:

Fisher Eq:

= jump distance

T = intergeneration dispersal time interval

Pre-industrial farmers (Majangir):

1.0 ± 0.2 km/yr

1.4 km/yr predicted

by Fisher’s Eq. !!

0.8 < vobserved < 1.2 km/yr

Predictions from demic diffusion (Fisher's Eq.):

f(x)

Up to now:

(Fick’s law)

→instantaneous !

Now:

→time-delayed

(Maxwell-Cattaneo Eq.)

Up to now:

Balance

of mass:

(Fisher’s Eq.)

Now:

(HRD Eq.=Hyperbolic reaction-diffusion)

For a biological population

in 2 dims:

Logistic reproduction:

HRD Equation:

= jump (or migration) distance

T = time interval between the jumps of parents and

those of their sons/daughters

(Fick’s law)

<T > → 0

Eq. HRD:

<T > → 0

(Fisher’s Eq.)

(Fisher)

<T > → 0

- Observed Neolithic speed: 1.0 km/yr
- Fisher’s equation in 2D: 1.4 km/yr
- HRD Eq: 1.0 km/yr
- Difference: 40 %
