In this topical course we shall study the dynamics of systems of ODE and reaction-diffusion-advection
diffusion equations arising in population biology. We shall study the theory of monotone dynamical systems
and uniform persistence with application to the models in population biology. We shall cover several chapters
in the books:

(1) "The theory of chemostat" by Hal Smith and Paul Waltman

(2)" Dynamical Systems in Population Biology" ,2nd edition, by Xiaoqiang Zhao.

The students will be required to give presentations in the course.
