About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Will be used by graduate students and researchers in the biological sciences to help in evaluating their experiments
    • This material initially appeared in Mathematical Models in Molecular and Cellular Biology, edited by Segel, but has been extensively updated for this volume

    "...very valuable...." Ken Howard, British Society for Developmental Biology Newsletter

    "...a useful introduction to an important branch of mathematical biology and a worthy addition to the Cambridge Studies in Mathematical Biology series." A. Abakuks, Biometrics

    "...a first rate introduction to, or review of, methods for analyzing biological kinetic data....can be read by either mathematically or biochemically trained scientists. Both groups will gain a better understanding of the other's work." Carla Wofsy, Mathematical Biosciences
