mathematics and medicine

Differential equation and precision at a dose in the radioimmunoassay and using comparisons of statistical power to see what was most biologically significant for the offspring in sequelae to pre-eclampsia are the two topics I have gotten into in relation to mathematics and medicine, a topic brought up by Dr. Helen. This discussion reminds me of 2 courses I took that were like the ideal college experience, an experience like the lines in Ode to a Grecian Urn, Beauty is Truth and Truth Beauty, That is all you know on earth and all you need to know, with the emphasis on truth. One of them was Dr. Wall's calculus course at UT Austin, about which perhaps more later.
