These tutorials were developed and used in teaching the research apprenticeship courses taught by the Center for Cell Dynamics. These tutorials are designed to rapidly familliarize students with Mathematica, dynamical systems theory, and building ordinary differential equation models of cytoplasmic processes and gene networks. These tutorials were designed to be used in sequence, but experienced Mathematica users may skip the first tutorial.
These tutorials require Mathematica 5.0 or higher to run. Mathematica is a commercial program developed by Wolfram Research, but many universities and research institutes have Mathematica site licenses; check with your computer department to see whether you can use a copy. Otherwise, you may view (but not execute) these tutorials by using the Wolfram Mathematica Player.
You are welcome to use these tutorials in your teaching, but must give credit to the original authors (see copyright notice in the Mathematica notebooks) and follow the rules of the GPL documentation license.
