Population Dynamics Collection


This is our collection of resources on the theme of Population Dynamics. It will take you through the fascinating mathematics of creating mathematical models to describe the changes in populations of living creatures. This is an advanced set of material, taking you right through to university-level mathematical modelling.

If you have ambitions to become a famous and successful scientist or applied mathematician, this is a good place to start!

 



We made these resources with the help of two undergraduate Cambridge mathematicians and a postgraduate mathematical ecologist, who had often used many of these concepts throughout their studies, and we all hope that you enjoy this challenging and stimulating collection.  Good luck!
