Applied Analysis in Mathematical Biology

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Rio Mar 2

The speakers in this minisymposium will address current issues in mathematical models for biological processes. They will discuss applications of delay differential equations to HIV models, the incorporation of varying population size in SEIR epidemic models, and the optimal control of population and chemotaxis systems.
