Title: Reduction of Complexity of Dynamical Systems: Applications to Fishery Modelling

Abstract: Population and community models are complex in the sense that they usually take into account many variables and parameters. We present methods allowing the reduction of the dimension of the system which may become, in this way, mathematically more tractable. The reduction of the proposed system is undertaken with the help of aggregation methods which aim at studying the relationships between a large class of complex systems, in which many variables are involved, and their corresponding reduced or aggregated systems, governed by a few variables. The kind of aggregation methods that we consider is based on time scale separation methods. In order to illustrate the methods in population and community dynamics, we present an application of aggregation methods in multi-site fishery modelling. The different sites can correspond to fishing areas, Marine Protected Areas (MPA), or still Fish Aggregating Devices (FAD).
We present modelling examples :
• We consider a multi-site stock-fishing effort model. We show that the total catch can be optimized for a given number of FADs.
• We study the effects of fast price variation as a result of demand and supply on the global dynamics of a fishery. We study cases of linear as well as non-linear demand functions of price.
• We present a model of a commercial species, the “thiof” in Senegal, showing drastic decreasing catch with a booming market price.
• We study the effects of Artificial Habitats on the dynamics of a fishery with a fishing area and a MPA.

Title: Reduction of complexity of dynamical systems and ecological applications

Abstract. We present methods of reduction of complexity in dynamical systems, called aggregation of variables, and their use in ecological modelling. In particular, we focus on
the case of discrete systems and Leslie models. Such methods allow to lower the the dimension of the system (number of equations) taking profit from time scale differences, in order to make it easier to analyse. We study the way to build an aggregated model in several cases and remind the way to perform the analysis. Such methods will be illustrated by ecological applications: modelling of large herbivors in Kenya National Parks (for continuous models) 
and modelling of the dynamics of a beetle in west France (for discrete models).
