Mathematics and Biology

Mathematics is an essential element in fields as diverse as medicine, the human genome, epidemiology, and research analysis. The above image depicts the electrical activity of a normal heart as if it were stimulated at a single point. Color is used to highlight the arrival time of the electrical signal as it propagates through the heart. The rectangular domain represents a large slab of the ventricular wall, and all domains use geometry and fiber orientation that are taken from anatomical data. Without mathematics there is no other way to view this three-dimensional concept. Visit the 1999 Mathematics Awareness Website for more information.

April is Mathematics Awareness Month. Each year the mathematics community celebrates the importance of mathematics in our lives. The theme for 1999 was "Mathematics and Biology".
