Collective Action in Fishery, Ireland

Case
This case was part of a study to determine whether the institutional design principles of Ostrom where, in fact, related to "governance success" by Cox et al.  In that analysis, this case was classified as a success/failure (to be supplemented).

Commons Libraries

Case
Databases/catalogs organized around Elinor Ostrom's vast research agenda -- common pool resources, SES framework, polycentricity. This study focuses on knowledge commons, and is a link between this knowledge infrastructure, the Digital Library of the Commons (http://dlc.dlib.indiana.edu/dlc/), the Workshop Research Library (https://ostromworkshop.indiana.edu/library/), and the Polycentricity Database (https://polycentricity.com/).

Community and Forest: Environmental Narratives in Ikaria island, Greece

Case
Τhis case concerns the Radi forest in Ikaria Island, Greece. It is revealed the role of local, community institutions, and the external institutional context in the organization process of people and forest. This work synthesizes and analyzes, by historical ethnography, the socio-ecological system, its origins and the conditions that contributed to the emergence and establishment of this system. The invention and the appliance of management plans by the self-organized community in Ikaria...

Community-based drinking water governance regimes in Čadrg

Case
Čadrg is a scattered mountain village in the southern part of the Western Julian Alps in western Slovenia. It belongs to the Municipality of Tolmin, which is characterized by its position near the border, its inaccessibility, being demographically threatened, and a peripheral location. Čadrg has forty-five permanent residents, and its high percentage of young residents means it is one of the few mountain villages in the municipality with good prospects for the future.The village community has...

Computer Modeling of the Immune System Reconstruction after Peripheral Blood Stem Cell Transplantation

Case
Attention is focused on the immune system reconstruction and the process of production of T- and B- lymphocytes and natural killer (NK) cells after autologous haematopoietic stem cells transplantation (HSCT). The mathematical model for leukopoiesis proposed in Periodic oscillations in leukopoiesis models with two delays is used as an initial point for investigations. HSCs in bone marrow are presented as two descrite groups: proliferating cell and non-proliferating (quiescent) cells. Quiescent...

Coupled population dynamics in an open, three-trophic-level system

Model
This model explicitly incorporates the immigration and emigration processes in the context of three-trophic-level systems (e.g., a stream reach), and reveals how the coupled populations will change in response to the primary-productivity gradients (e.g., r, K).  In contrast, traditional simple food-chain models study mostly two-trophic-level system which can be open or close.  More interstingly, though not reflected here, there are two contrasting models presented in the paper:...

Demographic-Fiscal Model of the Growth and Collapse of Agrarian States

Model
The Demographic-Structural theory is an empirically derived theory of the breakdown and collapse of agrarian states, originally posited by Jack Goldstone's (1991) work on Early Modern Engalnd, France, the Ottoman Empire, and Ming China. Pulling together opposing Marxist and Malthusian expanations of state collapse, the Demographic Structural theory suggests that population pressure among the general populace and among elites places fiscal pressures on the state. When the state becomes insolvent...

Dhap Kulo, Dhap Village, Thamalangtar Dhap Village Panchayat, Sindhupalchok District, Nepal

Case
This case is part of the original Nepal Irrigation Institutions and Systems (NIIS) database developed in the 1980's by a team of researchers under the direction of Dr. Elinor Ostrom at Indiana University. In addition, this case is also part of a longitudinal study that has repeatedly investigated 19 farmer-managed irrigation systems (FMIS) in the Indrawati River Basin that participated in an innovative intervention designed to improve irrigation performance not only by improving physical...

Dynamics of coupled population in an open, three-trophic-level system

Case
The investigated stream system, which consists of three-coupled populations (benthic algae, grazers, and predators), is modeled as a fixed region of space(e.g., stream reach) and over a limited period of time.  The time scale allows for growth of primary producers (algae), but not for reproduction of grazers and predators.  The system is open, allowing immigrations and emmigrations.  Immigration at all trophic levels is assumed to be governed by external factors and to be...

Effects of population and population pressure on forest resources and their conservation: a modeling study

Model
in this model, cumulative density of forest resources and population density use generalized logistic models with predatory-prey type nonlinear interactions. The model is an effort to capture not only the effect of population density on forest resources (a logistic model), but also the effect of population pressure on forest resources, which grows proportionally to population density and is limited by the carrying capacity of the forest.  Additionally, it models the effect of economic...

Electromagnetic Spectrum Allocation: Wireless Networks

Case
Wireless network is a network set up by using radio signal frequency to communicate among computers and other network devices, due to its easy setup feature and no cabling involved, it have become an important tool in the construction of modern society. New emerging technologies allow users to perform more and more complex tasks, driving an increasing mean bandwidth consumption per user. However, a wireless network has limited capacity to provide information transactions, that is, finite...
