Abstract

The increasing complexity of biological problems and the increase of mathematical means to handle them on the one hand, and the possibility of automatized computation at the other, necessitate a revaluation of the present interactions between biology and mathematics; in this connection interrelations occur which can be divided into three kinds: mathematical biology, biological mathematics, and general biomathematics or methodology of the biomathematical sciences, by which are meant those scientific branches which arise from the said interactions.
