Introduction to Mathematical Biology: Modeling, Analysis, and SimulationsThis book is based on a one semester course that the authors have been teaching for several years, and includes two sets of case studies. The first includes chemostat models, predatorprey interaction, competition among species, the spread of infectious diseases, and oscillations arising from bifurcations. In developing these topics, readers will also be introduced to the basic theory of ordinary differential equations, and how to work with MATLAB without having any prior programming experience.
