|Interdisciplinary computer-based activities for differential equations: a database of computer activities illustrating both mathematical concepts and the application of these concepts in a wide variety of disciplines. DynaSys, Java differential equations software that can be used to implement many of the activities, is available for downloading. Current project topics include: basic ecological models; bungee jumping; El Nino; irrigation and conservation; mathematical models of neurons; oscillating chemical reactions; rangeland ecosystems; salmon migration; small mammal dispersion; and discrete dynamics on the real line and in the complex plane. With a list of other Internet DiffEQ links.|
