Understanding the sound scattering dynamics for different structures, and different incident waves geometry, has shown to be a productive research field. However, the internal field to the scattering centers investigation still has a lot of important results that weren't yet approached: from material characterization to obtaining the amount of energy stored by the sound wave on the scat...
Acoustic scattering tries to understand the nature of propagation of incident and scattered waves, for different geometries and structures of scattering materials. Although the research field shows high conceptual and analytic maturity, there is still interest on the description of the scattering center internal fields. Such description takes into account theoretical models that describ...
This project refers to the study of spatial distribution of biological populations. Specifically, we turn our attention to how the space heterogeneity and the influence of individuals' spatial memory affect dispersal dynamics of a population and the generation of patterns related to ecological behaviors such as sedentarism, migration and nomadism. The methods used include analytical and...
Ecosystems are highly complex and characterized by interactions among environmental conditions, stochastic events and the organisms. All these variables interacting over the space-time scales make the functioning of ecosystems hard to understand. In this context, the arrangement of communities is very important because it promotes the functioning of ecological processes. However, there ...

Dryland ecosystems are very fragile and little resilient. So in dry lands, perturbations and increasing stress may cause catastrophic shifts, even degrading the soil layers and making it difficult to restore the degraded land. Despite these regions are socially and economically very important worldwide, the dynamics and interactions of the processes that lead to desertification are stil...
