Mathematical Methods and Modeling of Biophysical Phenomena - 2017

IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, November 30th to December 5th, 2017


This is part of a series of workshops organized by IMPA aiming at bringing together a multidisciplinary group of scientists to study problems in the biophysical sciences upon which mathematics may have an impact.

This year’s main topics are:

  • Inverse Problems in the Applied Sciences
  • Modelling in Biology, Ecology, and Epidemiology
  • Reaction-Diffusion Equations and Kinetic Theory
  • Identification and Inverse Problems in Biology
  • Structured-Population Dynamics
