Project on Branching processes and mathematical medicine
Branching processes describe things that exist for a time, then are replaced by copies of themselves.
Examples are cells of a certain type, DNA sequences, and people with a certain surname.
Using techniques such as the probabilty generating function and the solution of differential equations, useful models of situations in mathematical medicine can be constructed and solved. You will also be encouraged to perform numerical simulations to illustrate and motivate your work using, for example, the language python.
