    • Anomalous diffusion : a basic mechanism for the evolution of inhomogeneous systems 

      Oliveira, Fernando A.; Ferreira, Rogelma Maria da Silva; Lapas, L. C.; Vainstein, Mendeli Henning (2019) [Journal article]
      In this article we review classical and recent results in anomalous diffusion and provide mechanisms useful for the study of the fundamentals of certain processes, mainly in condensed matter physics, chemistry and biology. ...
    • Anomalous diffusion in the evolution of soccer championship scores : real data, mean-field analysis, and an agent-based model 

      Silva, Roberto da; Vainstein, Mendeli Henning; Goncalves, Sebastian; Paula, Felipe Soares Fagundes (2013) [Journal article]
      Statistics of soccer tournament scores based on the double round robin system of several countries are studied. Exploring the dynamics of team scoring during tournament seasons from recent years we find evidences of ...
    • Cooperation in diffusive spatial games 

      Vainstein, Mendeli Henning; Silva, Ana Tereza Costa; Arenzon, Jeferson Jacob (2007) [Journal article]
      Random diffusion is shown to be an important mechanism on fostering cooperative behavior among simple agents (memoryless, unconditional cooperators or defectors) living on a spatially structured environment. In particular, ...
    • Disordered environments in spatial games 

      Vainstein, Mendeli Henning; Arenzon, Jeferson Jacob (2001) [Journal article]
      The Prisoner’s dilemma is the main game theoretical framework in which the onset and maintainance of cooperation in biological populations is studied. In the spatial version of the model, we study the robustness of cooperation ...
    • Geometrical distribution of Cryptococcus neoformans mediates flower-like biofilm development 

      Lopes, William; Vainstein, Mendeli Henning; Araújo, Glauber Ribeiro de Sousa; Frases, Susana; Staats, Charley Christian; Almeida, Rita Maria Cunha de; Schrank, Augusto; Silva, Lívia Kmetzsch Rosa e; Vainstein, Marilene Henning (2017) [Journal article]
      Microbial biofilms are highly structured and dynamic communities in which phenotypic diversification allows microorganisms to adapt to different environments under distinct conditions. The environmentally ubiquitous pathogen ...
    • Percolation and cooperation with mobile agents geometric and strategy clusters 

      Vainstein, Mendeli Henning; Brito, Carolina; Arenzon, Jeferson Jacob (2014) [Journal article]
      We study the conditions for persistent cooperation in an off-lattice model of mobile agents playing the Prisoner’s Dilemma game with pure, unconditional strategies. Each agent has an exclusion radius rp , which accounts ...
