The past few decades have witnessed exciting developments in all areas of Mathematical Biology leading to very challenging computational questions related to the complex nature of the biological problems. To address these challenges, one requires innovative numerical methods at the cross-interface between deterministic and stochastic approaches that would facilitate efficient computational implementations.


This workshop aims to bring together leading experts and young researchers in both Numerical Analysis and Mathematical Biology areas. The goal is to identify and reflect on suitable numerical approaches that would be able to address the computational challenges arising in biological modelling. To that end, this event seeks to act as a catalyst for cross-fertilisation approaches and fresh perspectives drawn from these two exciting applied mathematics research areas.


This workshop is supported by generous funding from the Edinburgh Mathematical Society and the London Mathematical Society - Scottish Numerical Methods Network 2019.
