Class Details

Mathematical models are extensively used to understand biological phenomena. In this course we will study how differential and difference equations can be used to model various ecological systems ranging from predator-prey interactions to infectious disease dynamics. We will explore how to formulate these models, and methods for analyzing these systems including local and global stability analysis will be introduced.
