9780521708432: Modeling Differential Equations in Biology

Given that a college level life science student will take only one additional calculus course after learning its very basics, what material should such a course cover? This book answers that question. It is based on a very successful one-semester course taught at Harvard and aims to teach students in the life sciences understanding the use of differential equations. It is enriched with illustrative examples from real papers. Necessary notions from linear algebra and partial differential equations are introduced as and when needed, and in the context of applications. Drawing on a very successful one-semester course at Harvard, this text aims to teach students in the life sciences how to use differential equations. It is enriched with illustrative examples from real papers. Necessary notions from mathematics are introduced as and when needed, and in the context of applications. Aimed at biologists wishing to understand mathematical modelling rather than just learning math methods.

Book Description:

Drawing on a very successful one-semester course at Harvard, this text teaches students in the life sciences how to use differential equations. It is enriched with illustrative examples from real papers. Necessary ideas from mathematics are introduced as and when needed, and in the context of applications.

Review:

"The authors treatment of the mathematics itself shows a first-rate mathematician's taste and judgment combined with a genuine sympathy for the presumed capabilities and real needs of his target audience. ...Recommended."
Choice

"This book, well described by its title, stands out among the many similar books on the same subject matter by the inclusion, at the end of chapters, of quite a number of brief journal articles from the research literature which support and amplify the topics under discussion. Overall, I think the exposition is excellent; a student can learn a great deal from this book."
Hal Leslie Smith, Mathematical Reviews
