In science:

Section 1.3 defines the single-colony and the multi-colony C Λ -process, as well as the so-called McKean-Vlasov C Λ -process, a singlecolony C Λ -process with immigration and emigration from and to a cemetery state arising in the context of the scaling limit of the multi-colony C Λ -process with mean-field interaction.
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
C Λ -process with immigration-emigration: McKean-Vlasov limit The N → ∞ limit of the N -colony model defined in Section 1.3.2 can be described in terms of an independent and identically distributed family of P (E )-valued processes indexed by N.
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
Furthermore, we define the Λ-coalescent with immigration-emigration as the spatial Λ-coalescent with geographic space G = {0, ∗} and migration kernel a(0, ∗) = c, a(∗, 0) = 0.
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
R) the same notation we used for the McKean-Vlasov process with immigration-emigration on P (E ).
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
Z and (cid:101)Z agree. where the right-hand side is the McKean-Vlasov process with Fleming-Viot part at rate d1 , Cannings part Λ1 , and immigration-emigration at rate c1 from the random source Z (s).
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
Since there are only cookies of strength 1, we can concentrate on branching processes with immigration and no emigration.
Recurrence and transience of critical branching processes in random environment with immigration and an application to excited random walks
An emigration results in the growth of the coefficient, reciprocally, immigration results in the decrease of that latter, since the coefficients (2) are supposed to be a linear descending function of the abundance N (or M ).
The simplest model of spatially distributed population with reasonable migration of organisms
Such expansion results from the smart migration: individuals emigrate from the overpopulated station improving the survival of the entire population.
The simplest model of spatially distributed population with reasonable migration of organisms
The non-zero migration expands the range of the parameter, provided that the overpopulation in one station will be compensated by the emigration into another.
The simplest model of spatially distributed population with reasonable migration of organisms
Here µout (A) is the transfer cost of successful emigration from the station A; µin (B) is the transfer cost of successful introduction into the station B, respectively; finally, δ(A, B) is the pure transfer cost from station A to station B.
