# Dean's Distinguished Visiting Professorship Graduate Course: Infinite dimensional dynamical systems and their applications in mathematical biology (Lecturer: Messoud Efendiyev)

January 1 to June 30, 2018, The Fields Institute

## Description

Evolution equations arising in the modelling of life science problems is a fascinating subject area. It is at the very heart of the understanding of many important problems arising in biology, medicine, ecology, physics and mechanics. The goal of this course is to convince the audience of this and to show the important role of applying mathematics to real world situations, and explain, in particular, experimental findings.

I hope that this course will create additional interest in life-science problems among young researchers. Moreover, we aim to show how modelling real world situations (life science problems) has a crucial impact on mathematics, creating new challenging situations for mathematics itself, in particular for infinite-dimensional dynamical systems and their attractors.
