Advanced Search Strategies in Anomalous Dynamics

LML External Fellow Rainer Klages was awarded a research grant by the Office of Naval Research Global (USA) of US$117,000 to study how living organisms like cells, bumblebees or turtles optimize their search for food. For this purpose results from biological movement ecology, driven by experiments, will be combined with methods from the theory of anomalous stochastic processes.

The one-year funding will enable Rainer to fully focus on research by collaborating with leading international experts on four specific topics within this framework. A book chapter introducing the basic idea of this research, written for non-experts, can be found here: http://www.maths.qmul.ac.uk/~klages/papers/klages_difu_sprb2.pdf
