General Information

Mathematical Biology is concerned with the mathematical modeling and analysis of problems arising in Biology and Medicine. The challenges coming from this interdisciplinary research field being directly connected to specific applications require a broad mathematical knowledge (however, academic studies of Biology or Medicine are not necessary).


For a specialization in Biomathematics we recommend the following courses:



  • Maß- und Integrationstheorie
  • Vektoranalysis
  • Einführung: Gewöhnliche Differentialgleichungen
  • Einführung: Funktionalanalysis
  • Einführung in die Numerik
  • Stochastische Methoden
  • Differential Equations: Numerics of ODE & Introduction to PDE
  • Functional analysis
  • Fachpraktikum



  • Numerical Methods for Elliptic and Parabolic PDE
  • Sobolev Spaces
  • Biomathematics
  • Dynamical Systems
  • Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations


Additional recommendations:

  • Probability Theory
  • Stochastic Differential Equations
  • Numerical Methods for Hyperbolic PDE


Recommended special lectures:

  • Stochastic Models in Biomathematics
  • Traveling Waves
  • Reaction-Diffusion Equations with Applications to Biology and Medicine



  • Mathematical Models in Biology
  • Mathematical Modeling of Tumor Growth and Invasion
  • Cancer Modeling
