From the cover: “Understanding mathematics, and not only statistics, is essential for a study of the life sciences. This book presents mathematical ideas, methods and applications of biology in as simple a manner as possible, starting from a level of knowledge corresponding to GCE ‘0’ level mathematics. The book deals with calculus, including the following introductory topics: multi-dimensional space, mathematical functions and curves, and limits. Series and matrix algebra also receive some treatment. Biological applications include the use of the idea of multi-dimensional space in numerical taxonomy, the construction of a model of the growth of a microbial culture, plant growth analysis and population dynamics.
