Advanced Course on Mathematical Biology: Modeling and Differential Equations

Sunday, February 1, 2009 - 8:00pm to Friday, February 6, 2009 - 7:59pm

Differential Equations appear naturally in many mathematical biology models since they are the basic language of expression of the different considered mechanisms.
This first series of courses of the thematic program wants to explore particular and specific mathematical models in Biology mainly in the areas of adaptive dynamics, cell movement by chemotaxis, pattern formation, tumour growth modelling and population dynamics. The speakers for the advanced course are: Odo Diekmann (University of Utrecht, Netherlands), Masayasu Mimura (Meiji University, Japan), Benoît Perthame (ENS-Paris-6, France), Luigi Preziosi (Politecnico di Torino, Italy) and Angela Stevens (Heidelberg , Germany).

These courses are connected to the European Marie Curie PhD network DEASE (link to "Differential Equations and Applications in Science and Engineering" coordinated by the WPI Wien.
