If the population exhibits neither extinction, nor a switch to another metastable state or to an infinite population size, a natural goal is to determine the stationary probability distribution of the population size .
Large fluctuations in stochastic population dynamics: momentum space calculations
Recently, Escudero and Kamenev and Assaf and Meerson addressed quite a general set of reactions and developed controlled WKB approximations for the MTE and QSD for population switches and population extinction .
Large fluctuations in stochastic population dynamics: momentum space calculations
Here p, a complementary variable, is conjugate to the population size n and plays the role of “momentum” in an effective Hamiltonian system which encodes, in the leading order of 1/N expansion, the stochastic population dynamics.
Large fluctuations in stochastic population dynamics: momentum space calculations
For stochastic populations which do not exhibit population explosion , the probability Pn (t) decays faster than exponentially at large n.
Large fluctuations in stochastic population dynamics: momentum space calculations
If there is no population explosion, isolated populations ultimately undergo extinction with probability one.
Large fluctuations in stochastic population dynamics: momentum space calculations
If the underlying population, from which a single data point y1 is drawn, is itself uniformly populated and non-negative then y1 ± 0.41 × y1 will contain the mean of the parent population 50% of the time.
