This booklet is an advent to mathematical biology for college kids without adventure in biology, yet who've a few mathematical heritage. The paintings is targeted on inhabitants dynamics and ecology, following a practice that is going again to Lotka and Volterra, and features a half dedicated to the unfold of infectious ailments, a box the place mathematical modeling is very well known. those subject matters are used because the quarter the place to appreciate types of mathematical modeling and the potential that means of qualitative contract of modeling with information. The booklet additionally incorporates a collections of difficulties designed to process extra complex questions. This fabric has been utilized in the classes on the collage of Trento, directed at scholars of their fourth yr of reports in arithmetic. it may possibly even be used as a reference because it presents up to date advancements in numerous areas.
