BIOL 133L KS - Dynamical Diseases: Introduction to Mathematical Physiology
This course concerns the mathematical analysis of biological oscillators, excitable media, and feedback control. Predictions from models will be compared to observations. Information developed in the course will be used to design dynamic therapeutic strategies. Computer skills sufficient to explore dynamical systems will be developed in the laboratory.
Prerequisite(s): Calculus and linear algebra or permission of the instructor. Students will need a laptop computer with Internet access. Students who do not have a laptop computer should see the instructor for other options.
Course Credit: 1.0
Offered: Every fall
