    Frances E. Jensen: IMG What You Don't Know about the Teenage Brain



    Things were changing in our household: the teen years had intruded into our otherwise harmonious, do-as-mom-tells-you relatively orderly world. As... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Focusing on discrete models across a variety of biological subdisciplines, this introductory textbook includes linear and non-linear models of populations, Markov models of molecular evolution, phylogenetic tree construction from DNA sequence data, genetics, and infectious disease models. Assuming no knowledge of calculus, the development of mathematical topics, such as matrix algebra and basic probability, is motivated by the biological models. Computer research with MATLAB is incorporated throughout in exercises and more extensive projects to provide readers with actual experience with the mathematical models.

Book News Annotation:

Allman (math and statistics, U. of Southern Maine) and Rhodes (math, Bates College) share a strong interest in the interaction between the mathematical and biological sciences, as well as in the education of undergraduates for whom they've prepared this introductory text. Covering discrete models across a variety of biological subdisciplines, the authors aim to intrigue students rather than overwhelm them; they write in an informal style and make no attempt to offer definitive coverage, although they do treat some topics not usually touched on at this level. Coverage includes linear and non-linear models of populations, Markov models of molecular evolution, phylogenetic tree construction, genetics, and infectious disease models. Math topics are introduced as needed for the biological topics; knowledge of calculus is not prerequisite, but inclusion of material for those who do have that background makes the text adaptable. Computer investigations with MATLAB are incorporated throughout. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
