## Updates on teaching

A second part of the lecture notes on my graduate course in ODE can be found here: https://www.ndsu.edu/pubweb/~novozhil/Teaching/math760.html Updated lecture notes on mathematical models in biology appear here: https://www.ndsu.edu/pubweb/~novozhil/Teaching/math484.html

## A review about progress in dynamical systems

NINETY PLUS THIRTY YEARS OF NONLINEAR DYNAMICS: LESS IS MORE AND MORE IS DIFFERENT I review the early (1885–1975) and more recent history of dynamical systems theory, identifying key principles and themes, including those of dimension reduction, normal form transformation and unfolding of degenerate … Continue reading

## Beyond Mendel: modeling in biology

Modeling has a long and distinguished history in biology, and is becoming increasingly important as the growing availability of enormous datasets challenges the ability of biologists to extract understanding from knowledge [1]. The construction of models for biological systems is … Continue reading

## What are the origins of Math?

THE RECENT DISCOVERY OF THE HIGGS BOSON PARTICLE, which was predicted by mathematical formulas, shows the power of math to describe and predict the world around us–from the helical structure of DNA and the spirals of galaxies, to how rapidly epidemics spread and our universe is … Continue reading

## SMB2013 Impressions

Several remarks on the conference: Carlos Bustamante gave a talk on Population Genetic Inference in the Personal Genome Era. Basically, they collect huge amount of data on rare genetic variants and then map these data using PCA onto the space … Continue reading

## Mathematics and Biology: E.O. Wilson’s opinion

Great Scientist ≠ Good at Math For many young people who aspire to be scientists, the great bugbear is mathematics. Without advanced math, how can you do serious work in the sciences? Well, I have a professional secret to share: … Continue reading

## It would be good to go: SMB Meeting 2013

The Society for Mathematical Biology, Annual Meeting and Conference June 10 – 13, 2013 Site

## Interview with Vladimir Voevodsky

Vladimir Voevodsky is one of the most acclaimed contemporary pure mathematicians. It is very interesting therefore to read his opinion about pure and applied mathematics. Here is a recent interview, made by another very good pure mathematician Roman Mikhailov (the interview … Continue reading

## Lectures on Mathematical foundations of evolutionary theory

I looked through my lectures on the course I gave twice during the last couple of years and made some small changes, fixed a few typos, etc. Here are all the lectures together, in Russian: Lecture 0: A naive introduction … Continue reading

## Videos from Mathematical Biosciences Institute

Here is a list of videos, which I plan to watch: Run for your Life Odo Diekmann Effective population sizes and the canonical equation of adaptive dynamics Johan (=Hans) Metz Simple, very simple, and not so simple models of populations lingering around … Continue reading
