SNU mathematician develops mathematical approach to secure tiger corridors

Dr Sudeepto Bhattacharya and colleagues use game theory and network theory to model and secure tiger corridors in the Central India-Eastern Ghats landscape.

“We have adopted an interdisciplinary perspective for tiger corridor design, and have employed methods from mathematical disciplines of graph theory and game theory for modelling corridors, connecting existing protected areas containing tiger populations in the landscape” - Dr Sudeepto Bhattacharya

Dr Sudeepto Bhattacharya from the Department of Mathematics and Center for Informatics, SNU, and colleagues from University of Petroleum & Energy Studies, Dehradun, and Wildlife Institute of India, have used game theory and network theory to model and secure tiger corridors in the Central India-Eastern Ghats landscape. The paper was recently published in the journal Ecological Informatics, and covered in the July 21, 2019 edition of The Times of India.
