Abstract: Nonlinear dynamics depict nature phenomena, including biology. Mathematical modeling describing biological process typically involves several components and a number of parameters. These numbers of components and parameters can easily exceed the ones for systems popular to mathematicians. We introduce some mathematical models on ecology, gene regulation, and neuroscience, and discuss whether conventional or classical methodologies for studying nonlinear dynamics are accessible or effective in applications. Another issue is how mathematical analysis contributes toward the studies of biological science, as numerical simulations are apparently rather accessible.
