10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Plumeria & Tiare (Salon 9 & 10)
There is a substantial history of mathematical modeling in biology. The application areas encompass all aspects of life including population dynamics, ecology, developmental biology, genetics, enzyme kinetics, neurobiology, epidemiology, and cell biology. Due to the intrinsic complex and nonequilbrium nature of biological systems, these diverse systems have become a wonderful field for application of ideas from discrete and continuous dynamical systems theory. These models often lead to significant mathematical problems as well as interesting biological questions. The speakers will present recent mathematical and modeling results from several different areas of mathematical biology.
