You're outnumbered, in fear for your life, surrounded by flesheating zombies. What can save you now? Mathematics, of course. You'll learn how mathematics can predict the unpredictable. In order to be prepared for the apocalypse, you'll need mathematical models, differential equations, statistical estimations, discrete time models, and adaptive strategies for zombie attacks--as well as baseball bats and Dire Straits records (latter two items not included).
