an ecology graduate student working a recent ecology PhD who worked with the brilliant Troy Day and Peter Taylor at Queen’s University, has a new blog called Just Simple Enough: The Art of Mathematical Modelling. It’s great stuff, you totally need to check it out. She’s thinking out loud, and very articulately, about what makes a great model, why build a model at all, and how coming up with a simple model is often a matter of seeing the problem from the right angle (a topic on which I’ve commented myself).
Seriously, what are you doing still reading this blog? Click the links already!
