How can we find outc(x,t) ?

We can find outc(x,t) !

· Flux in 1 dimension:

· Flux in 2 dimensions:

If there is a chemical reaction:

For biological populations:

= jump distance

T = intergeneration dispersal time interval

Pre-industrial farmers (Majangir):

< 2 > = (1544 ± 368 ) km2

0.8 < vobserved < 1.2 km/yr

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

1 dimension

(A & C-S 1973)

2 dimensions

(F & M, PRL 1999)

f(x+x)

f(x)

Time delaysUp to now:

(Fick’s law)

→instantaneous !

Now:

→time-delayed

(Maxwell-Cattaneo Eq.)

HRD Equation

Up to now:

Balance

of mass:

(Fisher’s Eq.)

Now:

(HRD Eq.=Hyperbolic reaction-diffusion)

= jump (or migration) distance

T = time interval between the jumps of parents and

those of their sons/daughters

<T > → 0

Summary

- Observed Neolithic speed: 1.0 km/yr
- Fisher’s equation in 2D: 1.4 km/yr
- HRD Eq: 1.0 km/yr
- Difference: 40 %
(F & M, Phys. Rev. Lett. 1999)
