Event description

Description

For hundreds of years, mathematics has had a close connection with the biological sciences, and with physiology in particular. Indeed, some of the most famous equations in applied mathematics were originally motivated by physiological problems, such as the flow of blood in blood vessels. In this lecture, James Sneyd (University of Auckland, New Zealand) will present some famous examples of how mathematics has been used to study physiological problems, including Bernoulli's smallpox model from 1765, mathematical models of the cochlea from Helmholtz to Hudspeth, and the propagation of action potentials in neurons.
