About the course:

In this course, you will learn how to build, analyse and interpret mathematical models that are motivated by questions from ecology and evolutionary biology. More specifically, you will learn standard population dynamical and population genetics models and the necessary mathematical tools to analyse them. The course consists of lectures, home assignments and tutorials and you might want to take it while doing your degree project. Home assignments consist of problems that can be solved with paper and pencil and of problems for which mathematical software packages are necessary.
