Math 113B - Mathematical Biology

Math 113B: Mathematical Biology (Winter 2014, UC Irvine). Instructor: Professor German A. Enciso. This course is intended for both mathematics and biology undergraduates with a basic mathematics background, and it consists of an introduction to modeling biological problems using continuous ODE methods (rather than discrete methods as used in 113A). We describe the basic qualitative behavior of dynamical systems in the context of a simple population model. As time allows, we will then discuss other types of models such as chemical reactions inside the cell, or excitable systems leading to oscillations and neuronal signals. The necessary linear algebra is also discussed to avoid including additional requirements for this course.
