It also offers a physicists perspective on modeling biological processes. Each chapter starts with an overview followed by the recent results obtained by authors. Lectures are self-contained and are devoted to various phenomena such as the evolution of the genetic code and genomes, age-structured populations, demography, sympatric speciation, the Penna model, Lotka-Volterra and other predator-prey models, evolutionary models of ecosystems, extinctions of species, and the origin and development of language. Authors analyze their models from the computational and mathematical points of view.Contents:PrefaceTo Understand Nature Computer Modeling Between Genetics and EvolutionEvolution of the Age-Structured Populations and DemographyDarwinian Purifying Selection versus Complementing Strategy in Monte-Carlo SimulationsModels of Population Dynamics and Their Applications in GeneticsComputational Modeling of Evolution: Ecosystems and LanguageAge-Structured Population Models with Genetics
