    11 Sep 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Dan Flath

    We offer students the opportunity to develop several strategies for creating a population model using some simple probabilistic assumptions. These assumptions lead to a system of differential equations for the probability that a system is in state (or population size) n at time t. We go further...

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We build the infinite set of first order differential equations for modeling a stochastic process, the so-called birth and death equations. We will only need to use integrating factor solution strategy or DSolve in Mathematica for success.  We work to build our model of random events which...
