*Frank C. Hoppensteadt*

A co-publication of the AMS and the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University

Complex diseases involve most aspects of population biology, including
genetics, demographics, epidemiology, and ecology. Mathematical
methods, including differential, difference, and integral equations,
numerical analysis, and random processes, have been used effectively
in all of these areas. The aim of this book is to provide sufficient
background in such mathematical and computational methods to enable
the reader to better understand complex systems in biology, medicine,
and the life sciences. It introduces concepts in mathematics to study
population phenomena with the goal of describing complicated aspects
of a disease, such as malaria, involving several species.

The book is based on a graduate course in computational biology and
applied mathematics taught at the Courant Institute of Mathematical
Sciences in fall 2010. The mathematical level is kept to essentially
advanced undergraduate mathematics, and the results in the book are
intended to provide readers with tools for performing more in-depth
analysis of population phenomena.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University.

#### Readership

Graduate students and research mathematicians intrested in mathematical biology, population biology, system biology, computational biology, and epidemiology.
