Complex Dynamics Arising in Biological Modeling

The purphose of this minisymposium is 2-fold, first, to highlight important and significant modeling that have made an impact on biological research, and second, to present some of the mathematical methods which arise from applications involving complicated dynamical structures. These methods include things such as optimal controls as well as non-linear techniques to uncover bifurcation structures and their related dynamics. Standard numerical procedures are sometimes inadequate to cope with the particular problems, and different approaches must be developed to address these issues.
