IV Southern-Summer School on Mathematical Biology


Start time: January 5, 2015

Ends on: January 11, 2015

Location: São Paulo, Brazil


Marcel Clerc (Univ. Chile), Roberto Kraenkel (IFT-UNESP, Brazil), Paulo Inácio Prado (USP/SP, Brazil)

Roberto Kraenkel (IFT-UNESP, Brazil) – Introduction to Population Biology
1)    single species dynamics
2)    interacting species I: competition
3)    interacting species II: predator-prey dynamics
4)    models in epidemiology
5)    spatial population dynamics

This school is aimed at graduate students in Physics, Mathematics, Ecology and Epidemiology, having at least a basic knowledge of calculus and differential equations. Lectures cover the basics of population biology and are supplemented with modelling exercises addressing mainly problems in ecology and epidemiology. Undergraduate students with exceptional records are also encouraged to apply. Limited funds are available for travel and local expenses. There is no registration fee.

This activity will be followed by the ‘School on Pathogen Dynamics, Climate and Global Change’. Candidates may apply either for one or both schools.

Please note that acceptance cannot be taken for granted, as we expect a much higher number of applications than the maximum number of participants. We advise the candidates to carefully complete the application form, providing enough information for the selection committee to take a decision.

In order to have an idea of the kind of activities that take place during the course, please visit the home-page of the first three editions of this school at http://www.ictp-saifr.org/mathbio, http://www.ictp-saifr.org/mathbio2 and http://www.ictp-saifr.org/mathbio3.
