# Topics In Mathematical Modeling Tung Pdf

1. The first unit we will cover is from A Coursein Mathematical Biology,by Gerda de Vries, Thomas Hillen, Mark Lewis, Johannes Muller andBirgitt Schonfisch; Chapter 1 and 2 are here in two separate pdfs: Part 1, Part II

2. The next unit is on basic models for calculating interest taken fromK.K. Tung's book Topics in Mathematical Modeling.Here is the pdf: Interestchapter

3. Here is a chapter on MarkovChains.The first 15 pages or so cover material and examples that we did inclass. You should also be able to follow most of section 11.3 whichstarts on page 433 of the chapter. There are many great problems inthis chapter.

4. The next section is on data fitting methods. The following is from A First Course in Mathematical Modeling, byFrank Giordano, William Fox, Steven Horton andMaurice Weir: Part I, Part II

5. Here are two chapters on Standard Error (Chap 17) and Hypothesis Testing (Chap 26) taken from Statistics by David Feedman, Robert Pisani and Roger Purves .

6. This section is on dimensional analysis again using a chapter from Giordano et.al. Part I, Part II

7. The last section is on Hamiltonian systems in the plane. Here are some notes.
