Advisory Prerequisites:
MATH 215, 255, or 285; MATH 217; and MATH 425.
BS:
This course counts toward the 60 credits of math/science required for a Bachelor of Science degree.
Repeatability:
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

This course is an introduction to applications and integration of dynamical systems and game theory to model population and ecological dynamics and evolutionary processes. Topics include Lotka-Volterra systems, non-cooperative games, replicator dynamics and genetic mechanisms of selection and mutation, and other adaptive systems.

Course Requirements:

Attend lectures and complete the substantial homework assignments. There will also be a midterm test and the final exam.

Intended Audience:

Applied math and other theoretically and mathematically minded natural science and engineering students. Students of biology, ecology, economics and other social sciences, natural resources, bioengineering, and bioinformatics—with suitable math backgrounds—are especially welcome.

Prerequisites: Equivalent of four semesters of calculus (especially familiarity with differential equations) and working knowledge of elementary linear algebra and probability.
