Simple reaction-diffusion population model on scale-free networks

An-Cai Wu, Xin-Jian Xu, J. F. F. Mendes, Ying-Hai Wang
2008 Physical Review E  
In the case of modified diffusion, we obtain a larger critical death rate and steady population density, at the meanwhile, lower critical population density, which is good for the survival of species.  ...  The results were obtained using a mean-field-like framework and were confirmed by computer simulations.  ...  Acknowledgement Thanks to the Biotechnology & Biological Sciences Research Council for financial support for the attendance of AT at this conference.  ...
