Cambridge Studies in Mathematical Biology #12: Biological Kinetics

Cambridge Studies in Mathematical Biology #12: Biological Kinetics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The central purpose of this book is to illustrate the premise that examination of the kinetics of biological processes can give valuable information concerning the underlying mechanisms that are responsible for these processes. Topics covered range from cooperativity in protein binding, through receptor-infector coupling, to theories of biochemical oscillations in yeast and slime mold. In addition, an introduction to the explosively growing theoretical topic of chaos details attempts to apply this theory in physiology. The material in this book originally appeared as part of the volume Mathematical Models in Molecular and Cellular Biology (edited by Lee A. Segel and now out of print). Each article has been revised and updated.

Synopsis:

This book demonstrates how an understanding of biological kinetics can lead to knowledge about the biological model being examined.

Synopsis:

As interest in theoretical biology grows, so does the need for an accessible link between these theories and experiments. The central purpose of this book is to illustrate the premise that examination of the kinetics of biological processes can give valuable information concerning the underlying mechanisms that are responsible for these processes.
