Professor Cronin offers, for the first time, a synthesis of the work of Hodgkin and Huxley on nerve conduction. This information has previously been scattered throughout various media and difficult to retrieve. In this book the author thoroughly describes and analyzes their mathematical models (nonlinear ordinary and partial differential equations) and later models.
