About the book
MATHEMATICS FOR BIOLOGISTS describes mathematical concepts and techniques that are useful for studying mathematical biology laying emphasizes on ideas and principles over computations. The basic knowledge of, calculus of functions of one and more variables, matrix algebra, differential equations of first and second order etc. is necessary for first level of mathematical understanding for biologists. These topics along with some additional topics in calculus such as double integrals and power series, generating functions are also included in the book.
• Examples from biological systems are cited in some chapters for better understanding of the biological processes. The book will give a platform to understand the Mathematical Modelling for Biological systems and epidemiology.
