Mathematical Biology Seminars

The purpose of the Mathematical Biology Seminar, as part of the Applied Mathematics Center, is to meet the needs for the interaction between various areas of science on the one hand and mathematics on the other. We hope this seminar will provide an opportunity for faculty from different departments to interact and exchange ideas with a potential to initiate some collaboration. We believe that this can be accomplished by encouraging faculty from different disciplines to engage in a dialog with mathematicians outlining their problems to access new tools or methods as well as to suggest new ideas or developments within mathematics itself.

The presentations will intend to cover a broad range of topics in the area of mathematical biology, including problems such as population dynamics, the spatial spreading of species, and mathematical modeling in ecology and epidemiology. As most problems in mathematical biology involve the use of differential equations or partial differential equations, and some statistics, presentations on these areas are also welcome.
