Mathematical Models for Society and Biology, 2nd edition draws on current issues to engagingly relate how to use mathematics to gain insight into problems in biology and contemporary society. For the new edition, the author uses mathematical models that are simple, transparent, and verifiable. Also new to the book is an introduction to mathematical notions that every quantitative scientist in the biological and social sciences should know. Additionally, each chapter will now include a detailed discussion on how to formulate a reasonable model to gain insight into the specific question that has been introduced.
This is an essential reference for life science researchers, professionals, post-docs, and graduate students as well as for applied mathematics professionals and graduate students interested in exploring mathematical modeling in biology.
