Undergraduate Catalog 2015-2016
BIO 415 Mathematical Biology
(Also MTH 415)
4 hours; 4 credits
This course will address the growing interaction between mathematics and the biological sciences and will provide a practical context for the mathematical description and analysis of biological processes. The emphasis will be on the construction and analysis of models consistent with empirical data. Biological problems in ecology and conservation, epidemiology, cell biology, and neuroscience will be used to illustrate the equations, including especially nonlinear equations. The computer program MATLAB will be used extensively.
