Mathematical Models in Biology
What's the best ay to find your keys? Why should children be vaccinated against measles? How does a bird's wing flapping frequency relate to its size? This course will try to answer these (and other) questions by using mathematical models to examine biological phenomena.In achieving this we will study: deterministic and stochastic population dynamics, foraging theory, infectious disease spread, dimensional analysis, and asymptotic analysis.A well-rounded selection of MATH300 courses and a familiarity with Maple or MATLAB (or equivalent) are useful pre-requisites to this course.For a full list of Honours courses, please refer to the School of Mathematics and Statistics Honours Booklet Mathematics and Statistics Honours Booklet
