Book Description:

A union of biology, mathematics, and computer science

From the Back Cover:

Today, virtually any advance in the life sciences requires a sophisticated mathematical approach. The methods of mathematics and computer science have emerged as critical tools to modeling biological phenomena, understanding patterns, and making sense of large data sets, such as those generated by the human genome project. An Invitation to Biomathematics provides a comprehensive, yet easily digested entry into the diverse world of mathematical biology--the union of biology, mathematics, and computer science.

This textbook, expertly written by a team of experienced educators, is divided into two parts. The first section presents core principles as elucidated by classical problems such as population growth, predator-prey interactions, epidemic models, and population genetics, while the second applies these principles to modern biomedical research. In addition, the supplementary work Laboratory Manual of Biomathematics (available separately) is designed to enable hands-on exploration of model development, model validation, and model refinement.

  • Provides a complete guide for development of quantification skills crucial for applying mathematical methods to biological problems.
  • Includes well-known examples from across disciplines in the life sciences including modern biomedical research.
  • Explains how to use data sets or dynamical processes to build mathematical models.
  • Offers extensive illustrative materials.
  • Written in clear and easy-to-follow language without assuming a background in math or biology.
  • A laboratory manual is available for hands-on, computer-assisted projects based on material covered in the text.

This textbook is intended for use within courses in mathematical biology, as well as in general mathematics and biology courses that cover the application of math and statistics to biological problems. The reader is not expected to have any extensive background in either math or biology.
