Module code: MA4061

This module focuses on developing your understanding on the application of mathematical tools and techniques for mathematical modelling of biological and ecological phenomena. We will consider the main principle of mathematical model building and examine the different types of models, such as space/time discrete and/or continuous, and how to build or choose the model appropriately.
