Mathematics and Biology: The Interface, Challenges, and Opportunities
by Simon A. Levin
This report explores some of the opportunities at the interface between biology and mathematics. To mathematicians, the report argues that the stimulation of biological application will enrich the discipline of mathematics for decades or more, as have applications from the physical sciences in the past. To biologists, the report underscores the power of mathematical approaches to provide insights available in no other way. To both communities, the report demonstrates the ferment and excitement of a rapidly evolving field.
