Welcome to the fall quarter page for the Special Year in Mathematical Biology. The educational program comprises a full year course `Mathematical Modeling in Biology', a weekly seminar series, one three day minisymposium and an informal student/post doc seminar. Visitors remaining only the fall quarter are visiting graduate students. The biology department has several faculty interested in ecology and evolution.
As part of the Special Year in Mathematical Biology, the department of Mathematics will host a course given by visiting lecturers. The course is for graduate or undergraduate students with a strong mathematical background and interest in Ecology and Evolution. For more information, contact Fred Adler.
Most theoretical work on competition for space has been about plants. There is a vast body of empirical work on territorial behavior in animals, but few spatially explicit models and few attempts to use data to test existing models of competition for space. The symposium will address this gap. Talks and discussion will attempt to bring together theoretical and empirical work. The final discussion will ask, What new directions are needed for theoretical work in this field? What data would resolve the outstanding theoretical questions? Those interested in attending the minisymposia please send enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
