Further Developments

In this chapter further developments of the conditioning and projection matrix method are presented. In the following section, the discussion of the metapopulation Moran model is completed by adding mutation. Following this, a more detailed comparison of the two reduction methods is conducted. Finally, in the third section, the projection matrix method is applied to a new system, the Lotka-Volterra competition model of two interacting populations.
