Columbus, Ohio, USA
In this workshop, participants will learn about the use of stochastic differential equations (SDEs) to model physical phenomena in the biological sciences. Students will learn how to define and manipulate SDEs, and will understand the difficulties in performing statistical inference on the parameters of SDEs using data. They will relate the modeling of SDEs to the theory of spatial and temporal data analysis, and will carry out a small group project to discover and investigate how to model data from various disciplines within the biological sciences.
