    Fields Institute Communications
    Volume: 211999; 509 pp
    MSC: Primary 34; Secondary 92; 35; 58;



    This book presents the proceedings from the International Conference held in Halifax, NS in July 1997. Funded by The Fields Institute and Le Centre de Recherches Mathématiques, the conference was held in honor of the retirement of Professors Lynn Erbe and Herb I. Freedman (University of Alberta). Featured topics include ordinary, partial, functional, and stochastic differential equations and their applications to biology, epidemiology, neurobiology, physiology and other related areas.

    The 41 papers included in this volume represent the recent work of leading researchers over a wide range of subjects, including bifurcation theory, chaos, stability theory, boundary value problems, persistence theory, neural networks, disease transmission, population dynamics, pattern formation and more. The text would be suitable for a graduate or advanced undergraduate course study in mathematical biology.

    Features:

    • An overview of current developments in differential equations and mathematical biology.
    • Authoritative contributions from over 60 leading worldwide researchers.
    • Original, refereed contributions.

    Readership

    Graduate students, and research and applied mathematicians and scientists working in biology, ecology, epidemiology, neurobiology, and physiology.
