Two long standing, fundamental questions in biology are Under what conditions do populations persist or go extinct? When do interacting species coexist? The answers to these questions are essential for guiding conservation efforts and identifying mechanisms that maintain biodiversity. Mathematical models play an important role in identifying these mechanisms and, when coupled with empirical work, can determine whether or not a given mechanism is operating in a specific population or community.

This talk will overview the interplay between optics, plasmonics, and excitonics for systems that consist of arrays of gold, silver or aluminum nanoparticles in 1D, 2D and 3D. This will begin with a review of the use of classical electromagnetic theory to describe the optical properties of plasmonic particles of arbitrary shape, size and arrangement, and which leads to a variety of enhanced spectroscopies including surface enhanced Raman scattering.
