Math 608: Mathematical Methods for Continuum Modeling in Biology

Background and Goals: 

Intended to provide a rigorous foundation for mathematical modeling of biological systems. The mathematical emphasis is on partial differential equations, particularly reaction-diffusion and transport equations. In Fall 2017, topics will include an introduction to continuum mechanics, constitutive laws, viscoelasticity, morphoelasticity (growth), biological membranes, bacterial chemotaxis, and flagellar and ciliary biolocomotion.
