    Lotka-Volterra model of competition on graphs
    The lecture will be directed to generalization of the classic Lotka-Volterra model of competition between two biological species. The space-part of the model is represented by a finite graph, where both species can move between vertices along the edges. The model is described by a system of 2N ordinary differential equations, where N is number of vertices.  The aim is to study existence of space homogeneous and heterogeneous stationary states and their stability and describe their asymptotic behavior depending on choice of model parameters.

    Non-local Boundary Value Problem for Fractional Differential Equations in Resonance 
    The following fractional boundary value problem is studied $$^cD^\alpha u +p(t,u,u')^c D^\beta u= f(t,u,u'),  \phi(u)=0,  x'(0)=x'(T),$$ where \(^cD\) is Caputa fractional derivaive, \(1<\beta < \alpha \le 2\) and \(\phi: C[0,T] \to \mathbb{R}\) is a functional. This boundary value problem is in resonance. There are introduced conditions for functions  \(p,f \in C([0,T] \times \mathbb{R}^2)\), which guarantee existence of the solution. The results are proved by means of combination of Leray-Schauder degree with maximum principle for Caputa fractional derivative and "reduced" initial value problem.

    Discrete Reaction-Dispersion Equations 
    The classical reaction-diffusion equation is parabolic partial differential equation with generally non-linear non-homogeneity. It is usually used for spatial population model. The contribution is devoted to a discrete analogy, where the space and time are considered to be discrete; the space is a taken as a graph with dispersion along the edges, the considered reaction at vortices is autocatalytic. The equation can be interpreted as a model of meta-population with separated generations. The contribution aims to find analogy to known results of population ecology – minimal space area necessary for survival, existence and stability of space homogeneous equilibria. 

All interested are cordially welcomed.
