DESCRIPTION:Biological systems can emerge complexity from simp
le yet multitude of interactions. Capturing such b
iological phenomenon mathematically for prediction
s and inference is being actively researched. Comp
uting systems where the interacting components are
inherently stochastic demands large amounts of co
mputational power. Recently\, splitting the dynami
cs of the system into deterministic and stochastic
components has been a new strategy for computing
biological networks. This hybrid strategy drastica
lly reduces the number of equations to solve\, how
ever\, the new equations are naturally stiff and n
onlinear. Hybrid models are a strong candidate as
a numerical method for probing large biological ne
tworks with intrinsic stochasticity. In this talk
we will take on a new mathematical and numerical p
erspective of hybrid models. Through many biologic
al examples\, we will aim to gain insight into the
benefits and stumbling blocks of the hybrid frame
work.
