MAP 4494 - Mathematical Modeling in Biology II


Credits: 3

Prerequisites: MAP 4484 - Mathematical Modeling in Biology I  
Course Description: Introduction to techniques used in the construction, analysis, and evaluation of mathematical models. Modeling topics include: How fast will an infectious disease spread within a community? What fraction of a population need to be vaccinated in order to eradicate a disease, and what is the best vaccination policy? How stable is a given ecosystem? Students will learn how to frame a scientific question in mathematical terms; how to study the model using mathematical tools and techniques; how to interpret model predictions in the appropriate scientific context.
