Exploratroy Conference on the Mathematics of Biodiversity

Monday, July 2, 2012 - 6:00am to Friday, July 6, 2012 - 6:00am

1. Develop diversity measures that are sensitive to species similarity.
2. Understand the mathematical content of Jost's partitioning result.
3. Extend Jost's partitioning result to similarity-sensitive measures.
This activity is not just about creating new mathematics. It is also crucial that the methods developed are useful to life scientists. This requires communication in both directions: From life scientists to mathematicians and from mathematicians to life scientists.
