Mathematical Models in Biology – Elizabeth Allman – 1st Edition

This introductory textbook focuses on discrete models across a variety of biological subdisciplines, including and non- models of populations, Markov models of molecular evolution, phylogenetic tree construction from DNA sequence data, genetics, and disease models. The is suitable for at a level, but assumes no . Self-contained development of mathematical topics, such as matrix algebra and basic probability, is motivated by the biological models. Computer investigations with MATLAB are incorporated throughout, in both exercises and more extensive projects, to give readers hands-on experience with the developed.

Focusing on discrete models across a variety of biological subdisciplines, this introductory textbook includes linear and non-linear models of populations, Markov models of molecular evolution, phylogenetic tree construction from DNA sequence data, genetics, and infectious disease models. Assuming no knowledge of calculus, the development of mathematical topics, such as matrix algebra and basic probability, is motivated by the biological models. Computer research with MATLAB is incorporated throughout in exercises and more extensive projects to provide readers with actual experience with the mathematical models.
