Notes

Bellman, an American applied mathematician, worked in industry for years before turning his attention to applied mathematics in biology and medicine, becoming founding editor of the journal Mathematical Biosciences in 1967. In this lecture, Bellman addressed the difficulties in understanding large and complex systems, and suggested that computer simulation can be a useful tool for increasing our understanding of them.
