This book focuses on the differential equations and related subjects that are commonly used today by working life scientists. It emphasizes both the mathematics and how the mathematics is employed in order to introduce some potentially useful tools and modes of thought to future experimental biologists. Chapter topics include phase plane analysis, vectors, linear and non-linear systems, matrix notation, advection, diffusion equations, separation of variables, traveling waves, and periodic solutions. For individuals interested in biology and the life sciences, and aware of how they will play a major role in our society in the coming century. y.
