An Introduction to Stochastic Processes with Biology Applications
For introductory courses on stochastic modeling with extensive applications in the biological sciences.Stochastic Processes with Biology Applications fills a growing need for a text of its kind in the field of mathematical biology. Plenty of examples, diagrams, and figures take students step-by-step through well-known classical biological models to ensure complete understanding of stochastic modeling.
