    1. Nonlinear dynamics and chaos: with applications to physics, biology, chemistry and engineering - Steven H. Strogatz 2000

      Book Further Reading This text contains the underlying methods and techniques from Dynamical Systems Theory (both continuous and discrete-time) required for this module. Such methods and techniques are pre-requisite for this module and so this text should be used as a reference resource to help you review and refresh your existing mathematical skills.

    2. Essential mathematical biology - N. F. Britton c2003

      Book Recommended for Student Purchase We will make use of this text on a weekly basis throughout the module as Core Reading. It is available as an e-book or in hard copy. It may be worth bearing in mind that you will need frequent and ongoing access to this text and that you will be able to sell-on the hard copy version second hand to future students or online. The relevant chapters of the book are Chapters 1 and 2 (Population Dynamics), Chapter 3 (Infectious Diseases) and Chapter 4 (Population Genetics and Evolution).

    3. Mathematical models in biology - Leah Edelstein-Keshet, Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics 2005

      Book Further Reading An elementary introduction to the application of mathematical modelling and dynamical systems theory to problems in biology. Browse this text to widen your knowledge and appreciation of the subject beyond the specific topics covered in this module.

    4. Stability, instability and chaos: an introduction to the theory of nonlinear differential equations - Glendinning 1994

      Book Further Reading This text contains the underlying methods and techniques from Dynamical Systems Theory (both continuous and discrete-time) required for this module. Such methods and techniques are pre-requisite for this module and so this text should be used as a reference resource to help you review and refresh your existing mathematical skills.

    5. Mathematical biology - J.D. Murray c1993

      Book Further Reading This is THE classic textbook on Mathematical Biology covering a vast array of biological applications. Chapters 1 and 3 (Population Dynamics) and 10 (Dynamics of Infectious Diseases) are particularly relevant to this module.
