Ms Neeta Mazumdar, Associate Professor Dept of Mathematics, has been sanctioned Minor Research Project by UGC on “Mathematical Study of Olive Ridley Turtle Migration due to Olfactory Communication in Water: A Case Study of Goa” on 25.08.2011.

 

Report of the work done in the first year from25.08.11 to 25.08.12
i) Brief objective of the project

The work is  interdisciplinaryin nature and has direct applications to ecological sciences.In this project, I have  discussed the mathematical model. The model is based on Olfactory communication, release and diffusion of chemical pheromones by female marine species (mainly Green Turtles) in ocean to enable the young ones to find the return path. This problem gives concentration distribution of pheromones in the ocean. This model describes and studies pheromone concentration based communication between marine species.

ii)Work done so far and results achieved and publications, if any, resulting from the work (Give details of    papers and names of the journals in which it has been published or accepted for publication)

In this year, library references are done. This covers mathematical study of Biological diffusion, chemical communication and  turtle migration, Olfactory Communication in animal species, chemical communication, Biological diffusion and Migration.

Papers published in the period 25.08.2011 to 25.08.12:

  • Prey-predator models in marine life’, inInternational Journal of Engineering Inventions (IJEI), 2012 published by IISc. Bangalore.
  • ‘: Mathematical modelling of water pollution in two layered sea surface with transient conditions’,JMI International Journal of Mathematical Sciences,2012 published by Department of Mathematics, JamiaMilliaIslamia, New Delhi – 110 025, India
