Master's Programme in Mathematics and Statistics is responsible for the course.
The course belongs to the Mathematics and Applied mathematics module.
The course is available to students from other degree programmes.
Ordinary differential equations
Modelling evolution by natural selection as derived from possibly complex ecological interactions. Familiarity with the mathematical theory of adaptive dynamics and practice in its application to various biological problems.
Recommended time/stage of studies for completion: 1. or 2. year
Term/teaching period when the course will be offered: varying
Adaptive dynamics is a modern mathematical framework to model evolution by natural selection, where selection derives from (possibly complex) ecological interactions between the individuals. The course contains the methods and theorems of adaptive dynamics as well as a number of applications to concrete biological problems.
Lectures and exercise classes; individual project with written report and oral presentation of the results
Individual project (written report and presentation), Course will be graded with grades 1-5
