7.440 An Introduction to Mathematical Ecology


Class Info

Covers the basic models of population growth, demography, population interaction (competition, predation, mutualism), food webs, harvesting, and infectious disease, and the mathematical tools required for their analysis. Because these tools are also basic to the analysis of models in biochemistry, physiology, and behavior, subject also broadly relevant to students whose interests are not limited to ecological problems.

This class has 18.01, and 7.30B as prerequisites.

7.440 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by M. Neubert and H. Caswell (WHOI).

Lecture occurs 1:00 WH to 2:30 WH on Tuesdays and Thursdays in CAMPUS.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
