It would be great if you folks could look at week308 before I officially announce its existence tomorrow, and tell me - here - if it needs to be improved.
Tim van Beek did a lot of the work on this one, so I'm especially interested in his opinion. But others of you may have ideas — especially since it describes the Azimuth Code Project, which is aimed at people who program. Maybe I could do a better job of selling it than I did. I don't want to oversell it, since it's just getting started, but still...
I feel sort of bad that I did not include Graham Jones' work on predator-prey models in my discussion of the Hopf bifurcation. However, I feel I often talk about too many things in a single issue of This Week's Finds, straining the patience of most readers. So, I think it will be better if I do a separate issue on quantitative ecology. This would make a nice example of how the same patterns - limit cycles, etc. - show up in different systems.
Graham: would it be okay if I use your pictures in a future issue of This Week's Finds? I sort of hint that I may do this, near the end of week308.
The day after tomorrow (Christmas) I will go to Vietnam, and I'll probably be out of contact until I get back on January 5th.
