Academic Papers

Key: author worked on project as: u=undergraduate student; g=graduate student
  1. David E. Hiebeler, "A Brief Overview of Cellular Automata Simulation Packages," in Physica D vol. 45, 1990. Note, this issue of the journal was also published as the book Cellular Automata: Theory and Experiment, edited by Howard Gutowitz. The software review I wrote is pretty out of date by now, but everything else in the proceedings is still very good.
  2. D.E.H. and Robert C. Tatar, "Cellular Automata and Discrete Physics", published as chapter 12 of the book Introduction to Nonlinear Physics, edited by Lui Lam (Springer-Verlag, 1997). I wrote this when I was an undergrad; it took them 7 years to publish the book!
  3. D.E.H., "Implications of Creation ," a paper asking "if we are successful at creating artificial life, then what do we need to worry about?". In Idealistic Studies, vol. 23 no. 1, Winter 1993 (special issue on philosophy and computers).
  4. D.E.H., "The Swarm Simulation System and Individual-Based Models", presented at Decision Support 2001: Advanced Technology for Natural Resource Management, and published in volume 1 of the proceedings (ISBN: 1-57083-021-5 or 1-57083-023-1). This paper talks about the original Swarm prototype and about individual-based modeling in ecology and other fields. Here is a link to more up-to-date information on Swarm.
  5. D.E.H., "Stochastic Spatial Models: From Simulations to Mean Field and Local Structure Approximations" (abstract), Journal of Theoretical Biology 187, pp 307--319 (1997). I also presented a version of this work, with the title "Understanding and predicting stochastic spatial models using local structure theory" (abstract), at the annual conference of the Ecological Society of America, August 12, 1996 in Providence, RI.
  6. D.E.H., "Spatially Structured Discrete Population Models," (abstract), published in Advanced Topics in Biomathematics: Proceedings of the International Conference on Mathematical Biology, edited by Lansun Chen, Shigui Ruan, and Jun Zhu (World Scientific, 1998). I spoke on a related topic at the conference, which was held at Zhejiang Agricultural University in Hangzhou, China, May 1997.
  7. D.E.H., "Populations on Fragmented Landscapes with Spatially Structured Heterogeneities: Landscape Generation and Local Dispersal," Ecology 81(6), pp 1629--1641 (2000) (abstract). Note: the small versions of a few of the figures don't look very good, so here are larger versions of those three figures. And the C program for generating the heterogeneous landscapes is available: 2x1gen.c.
  8. D.E.H., "Competition Between Near and Far Dispersers in Spatially Structured Habitats," Theoretical Population Biology 66(3), 205--218 (2004).
  9. D.E.H., "Spatially Correlated Disturbances in a Locally Dispersing Population Model," Journal of Theoretical Biology 232(1), 143--149 (2005). I've also written a Java applet implementing this spatial population ecology model.
  10. D.E.H., "A Cellular Automaton SIS Epidemiological Model with Spatially Clustered Recoveries," Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 3515, 360--367 (2005). Also presented at the workshop on Modelling of Complex Systems by Cellular Automata, at the International Conference on Computational Science, Atlanta GA, May 2005.
