**Mathematics in Biology**

Description: The slippery gooiness of biology is a consequence of its incredible complexity, consisting as it does of complex systems based upon chemistry. And chemistry obeys the rules of physics, which exists because of, and is consequently best described by, mathematics. Mathematics is the ur-fluid of Reality (gad, how poetic), and our symbollic attempts to represent mathematics have given us windows through which our mushy grey-matter can peer, and with which this same mushy grey-matter becomes altered, and we call this alteration understanding (a frequently generous appellation). The purpose of these pages is to press our noses against some of the windows that look upon biological systems, and to do it in as interactive and stimulating a way as possible.
