Comparing different methods of the Escalator Boxcar Train based on the Daphnia model
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Escalator Boxcar Train (EBT) is a numerical analysis used to solve physiologically
structured population models (PSPMs) and has been presented in two different
variations. This report describes a study using simulation and information from
preceding experiments, as well as observations from natural biological systems of
Daphnia and humans, in order to attain empirical comparisons between the two
EBT methods. The results of the study demonstrate that the algorithms from
both methods are equivalent, and that application of EBT in PSPMs does not
alter natural biological systems.
