By Linda J.S. Allen

KEY BENEFIT: This reference introduces a number of mathematical types for organic structures, and offers the mathematical conception and methods valuable in reading these types. fabric is equipped in line with the mathematical idea instead of the organic program. includes purposes of mathematical concept to organic examples in every one bankruptcy. makes a speciality of deterministic mathematical versions with an emphasis on predicting the qualitative answer habit through the years. Discusses classical mathematical types from inhabitants , together with the Leslie matrix version, the Nicholson-Bailey version, and the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey version. additionally discusses more moderen versions, corresponding to a version for the Human Immunodeficiency Virus - HIV and a version for flour beetles. KEY MARKET: Readers seeking an excellent historical past within the arithmetic at the back of modeling in biology and publicity to a wide selection of mathematical types in biology.

Those notes are in line with a one-quarter direction given on the division of Biophysics and Theoretical Biology of the collage of Chicago in 1916. The direction used to be directed to graduate scholars within the department of organic Sciences with pursuits in inhabitants biology and neurobiology. just a moderate acquaintance with chance and differential equations is needed of the reader.
