About the Authors
  • This textbook is concerned with the mathematical modelling of biological and physiological phenomena for mathematically sophisticated students. A range of topics are discussed: diffusion population dynamics, autonomous differential equations and the stability of ecosystems, biogeography, pharmokinetics, biofluid mechanics, cardiac mechanics, the spectral analysis of heart sounds using FFT techniques. The last chapter deals with a wide variety of commonly used medical devices. This book is based on courses taught by the author over many years and the material is well class tested. The reader is aided by many exercises that examine key points and extend the presentation in the body of the text. All students of mathematical biology will find this book to be a highly useful resource.

    • Contains material from both mathematical biology and mathematical physiology
    • Broad and interesting selection of topics
    • No previous knowledge of applications of mathematics to physiology and biology necessary
