MAA PREP WORKSHOP 2009

Mathematical Modeling in Population Biology & Epidemiology

July 10-12, 2009

Workshop Organizers:

Sophia R.-J. Jang (sophia.jang@ttu.edu), Linda J. S. Allen (linda.j.allen@ttu.edu) and Lih-Ing W. Roeger (lih–ing.roeger@ttu.edu)

Population biology and epidemiology are exciting research areas that provide many opportunities for mathematicians and biologists to interact with students on problems of current interest. This workshop will introduce college mathematics faculty to modeling techniques and computer technology useful to the formulation and analysis of models concerning multiple-population interactions, disease dynamics, and the effects of intervention programs on population or disease control. Workshop participants will gain first-hand experience exploring many problems suitable for undergraduate research.
