The major aim of this book is to present instances of interaction between two major disciplines, biology and mathematics. The goal has been that of addressing a fairly wide audience. Biology students will find this text useful as a summary of modern mathematical methods currently used in modelling, and furthermore, applied mathematics students may benefit from examples of applications of mathematics to real-life problems. As little background as possible has been assumed throughout the book: prerequisites are basic calculus so that undergraduate students, as well as beginning graduate students, will find most of the material accessible.

This book is an introduction for readers interested in biological applications of mathematics and modeling in biology, showing how relatively simple mathematics can be applied to a variety of models. Despite the great advances that have taken place, the simple lessons described in the text are still important and informative.About the Author:
