Spatial Models in Ecology and Epidemiology

This course considers models for the growth and dispersal of biological populations. Topics include population persistence, climate-induced range shifts, and rates of spread of invading organisms. We will consider reaction-diffusion equations, integrodifference equations, branching random walks, and other relevant classes of models.

Prerequisites:



Either a course in partial differential equations or permission of the instructor
