This introductory textbook is based on the premise that the foundation of good science is good data. The educational challenge addressed by this introductory textbook is how to present a sampling of the wide range of mathematical tools available for laboratory research to well-motivated students with a mathematical background limited to an introductory course in calculus.In part, this choice is made pragmatically, since the application of mathematical techniques to real-life experimental situations ... Two types of living dynamical systems are potentially attractive for such a laboratory: (1) the dynamical behaviors of ... in ecology, molecular biology, and physiology are included to demonstrate the wide applicability of the laboratory tools. ... A lab manual that gives the material we provide to our students is provided on a website.1 It includes information aboutanbsp;...
