Abstract: Understanding the nature of spreading of invasive species is a central problem in invasion ecology. This is a problem of nonequilibrium. If we represent the population distribution of an invasive species as a function of time t and space location 'x', written as 'u'('t','x'), then it is possible to establish mathematical models that govern the evolution of 'u'. We will look at several such mathematical models in this article, and discuss the predictions they offer for the invasion problem.
