Quasi stationarity

Phil Pollett

Abstract: Many biological systems are predicted to "die out", yet they persist over any reasonable time scale. This phenomenon, termed quasi stationarity, is apparent in many biological systems: a population may persist over many years; an infection may become endemic in a population; a chronically ill patient may survive for a long period of time. I will review several approaches to modelling this behaviour.
