This book focuses on the differential equations and related subjects that are commonly used today by working life scientists. It emphasizes both the mathematics and how the mathematics is employed in order to introduce some potentially useful tools and modes of thought to future experimental biologists. Chapter topics include phase plane analysis, vectors, linear and non-linear systems, matrix notation, advection, diffusion equations, separation of variables, traveling waves, and periodic solutions. For individuals interested in biology and the life sciences, and aware of how they will play a major role in our society in the coming century. y.

Book Description:

Drawing on a very successful one-semester course at Harvard, this text teaches students in the life sciences how to use differential equations. It is enriched with illustrative examples from real papers. Necessary ideas from mathematics are introduced as and when needed, and in the context of applications.

Review:

"The authors treatment of the mathematics itself shows a first-rate mathematician's taste and judgment combined with a genuine sympathy for the presumed capabilities and real needs of his target audience. ...Recommended."
Choice

"This book, well described by its title, stands out among the many similar books on the same subject matter by the inclusion, at the end of chapters, of quite a number of brief journal articles from the research literature which support and amplify the topics under discussion. Overall, I think the exposition is excellent; a student can learn a great deal from this book."
Hal Leslie Smith, Mathematical Reviews
