Lectures & Guidelines |
This course will be an introduction to the interplay of
mathematics with several disciplines, namely biology, ecology,
pharmacology and physiology,
and it will be taught within the context of We shall cover book chapters from Murray and allude to other topics (hand-outs to be provided) as may be required. The main emphasis of this course will be on techniques of mathematical modeling in biology and ecology, and in the context of mean-field type modeling of complex systems (not agent-based modeling of complex systems). Practical implementation of algorithms on computers will be encouraged.
