Objectives: This course provides the student with the fundamental skills for a research career in the growing field of mathematical medicine and biology. Advanced nonlinear systems techniques will be covered to analyse mathematical models of infectious diseases e.g. HIV, ebola and influenza. In terms of specific maths topics, students do not need a deep mathematical background, but enthusiasm and a willingness to learn about it. Biological terminology will be introduced as necessary throughout the course. Modules are mainly delivered through lectures and problem classes for smaller groups.
Module 1. Principles of Mathematical Modelling
Module 2. Linear Systems
Module 3. Nonlinear Systems
Module 4. Identification Systems
