It presents a broad picture of the current research surrounding applications of dynamical systems in biology, particularly in population biology. The book contains 19 papers and includes articles on the qualitative and/or numerical analysis of models involving ordinary, partial, functional, and stochastic differential equations. Applications include epidemiology, population dynamics, and physiology. The material is suitable for graduate students and research mathematicians interested in ordinary differential equations and their applications in biology. Also available by Ruan, Wolkowicz, and Wu is Differential Equations with Applications to Biology, Volume 21 in the AMS series, Fields Institute Communications. Titles in this series are copublished with the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences (Toronto, Ontario, Canada). Readership Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in ordinary differential equations and their applications. Reviews "This volume is a highly selective and carefully edited piece ... a collection of wellwritten and balanced articles by ... wellknown researchers at the interface of biomathematics and dynamical systems ... the work represents frontiers or emerging frontiers of biomathematics research."
