Unit began in 2000. J.R.D.
"Role of Mathematics as a bridge between the hard and soft sciences".
Mathematical Modelling as an activity is quite basic to the process of logic
and reasoning itself. Maynard-Smith pointed out, the purpose of Mathematical
Modelling is to help us realize the "consequences of our assumptions".
Our present goal is to apply mathematical modelling to somewhat nontraditional
applications. We have been working on applications in Biology, Economics,
Nonlinear Dynamics and Signal
Processing and Cryptography.
