Mathematical Models in Biology
Mathematical Biology started when Malthus noticed that populations often grow exponentially. Since then the field has broadened to many fields including population dynamics, fluids, epidemiology and network theory.In this research focused course we will use recent research papers to get a good understanding of the range of topics that fall under this broad heading. We will study research that uses a wide range of mathematical and statistical techniques including dynamical systems, PDEs, Matrix methods, spectral analysis and stochastic processes.We will learn how to quickly get to grips with unfamiliar topics and pull out the key findings from research papers.
Confidently read research papers in unfamiliar areas.Be familiar with a range of standard modelling techniques.Be aware of the wide range of topics studied in mathematical biology.Develop written and oral communication skills that allow non-mathematicians to understand your findings.
