Introduction to Mathematical Biology

Mathematical models of population growth and other biological processes. Use of math order linear difference equations will be used to model propagation of annuals plants; growth of segmental organisms; red blood cell production; and population growth and destiny dependence in single-species populations. Continuous models will be constructed from among several possibilities, including the logistic equation, simple exponential growth, the Chemostat, Michaelis-Menten kinetics, drug delivery, glucose-insulin kinematics, Gompertz growth in tumors, and the Fitzhugh-Magumo model for neural impulses. Appropriate software will be used throughout the course.
