This contribution explains how quasipotentials which characterize the N→∞-asymptotics of fluctuating macrovariables in systems of N globally coupled subsystems can be constructed, and how they can be used for the detection and description of noise induced phase transitions. For the sake of clarity these ideas are formulated for models with discrete time and finite subsystem state space. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    We propose a simple population model including the food supply as a dynamic variable. In the model, survival of an organism depends on a certain minimum rate of food consumption; a higher rate of consumption is required for reproduction. We investigate the stationary behavior under steady food...
