In science:

This admits a satisfactory reproduction of structural details despite the relatively low resolution used for the computation of a larger number of cases, as needed in parametric studies.
Structures in compressible magnetoconvection and the nature of umbral dots
Branching random walks (in short, BRWs) add space to this picture: particles live in a spatially structured environment and the reproduction law, which may depend on the location, not only tells how many children the particle has, but also where it places them.
Strong local survival of branching random walks is not monotone
The idea to give reproduction a non-local geographic structure, in particular, in two dimensions, was exploited in Barton, Etheridge and V´eber [BEV10] and Berestycki, Etheridge and V´eber [BEV] also.
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
Since we have introduced a spatial structure, we now allow, on all hierarchical levels k simultaneously, a reproduction event where each individual treats the k-block around its present location as a macro-colony and uses it for its resampling.
Renormalisation of hierarchically interacting Cannings processes
They are, however, of interest when a mutation affects features relevant for the demographic structure, like the mean age of reproduction, or the agedependent mortality.
