Mathematical Models for Society and Biology by Edward J. Beltrami

Book Description

Mathematical Modeling for Society and Biology engagingly relates mathematics to compelling real-life problems in biology and contemporary society. It shows how mathematical tools can be used to gain insight into these modern, common problems to provide effective, real solutions. Beltrami's creative, non-threatening approach draws on a wealth of interesting examples pertaining to current social and biological issues. Central ideas appear again in different contexts throughout the book, showing the general unity of the modeling process. The models are strikingly novel and based on issues of real concern. Most have never appeared in book form. Through the relevance of these models mathematics becomes not just figures and numbers, but a means to a more refined understanding of the world.

Mathematical Models for Society and Biology by Edward J. Beltrami Mathematical Models for Society and Biology, Hardback (August 2013)

Suitable for researchers, graduate students, and post-docs in the applied mathematics and life science fields, this book focuses on issues to engagingly relate how to use mathematics to gain insight into problems in biology and contemporary society. It uses mathematical models that are simple, transparent, and verifiable.

What is Random? by Edward J. Beltrami What is Random?, Hardback (August 1999)

Randomness turns out to be one of those concepts, like "solid matter" in physics, that works just fine on an everyday level but mysteriously disappears once we move in to examine its fine structure. This book, takes a look at randomness to make it mysteriously disappear.
