Mathematical Models for Society and Biology, Hardback Book

Mathematical Models for Society and Biology Hardback


Mathematical Models for Society and Biology, 2e, is a useful resource for researchers, graduate students, and post-docs in the applied mathematics and life science fields.

Mathematical modeling is one of the major subfields of mathematical biology.

A mathematical model may be used to help explain a system, to study the effects of different components, and to make predictions about behavior. Mathematical Models for Society and Biology, 2e, draws on current issues to engagingly relate how to use mathematics to gain insight into problems in biology and contemporary society.

For this new edition, author Edward Beltrami uses mathematical models that are simple, transparent, and verifiable.

Also new to this edition is an introduction to mathematical notions that every quantitative scientist in the biological and social sciences should know.

Additionally, each chapter now includes a detailed discussion on how to formulate a reasonable model to gain insight into the specific question that has been introduced.
