  • Mathematics is a key element of virtually all research carried out in the T&AM field. TAM faculty and students develop and explore mathematical models of biological systems such as: the small-world phenomenon in social networks (popularly known as "six degrees of separation"); the collective behavior of biological oscillators; the geometry and mechanics of supercoiled DNA; and the neurobiology of lampreys' pattern generation for swimming.
