9780471186465: Advanced Tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences: Animations, Simulations, and Calculations Using Mathematica?

This unique book and computer disk package will help researchers, instructors, and students in pharmacy, medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, or other biomedical sciences reach a deeper understanding of the more advanced chemical and physicochemical processes as they relate to drug action, drug discovery, and biomedical science in general. Mathematica software permits rapid numerical, symbolic, and graphic calculations that allow complex concepts to be displayed, animated, and discussed in the same document. In "Advanced Tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences," Mathematica is used as a tool to display, animate, and calculate various physical phenomena: No programming by the instructor or the reader is needed to activate these functions. The Tutorials are "interactive" in that the user not only enters but may also change the values of parameters within the code in order to better understand difficult concepts.

The computer disk will continue to serve the researcher as a computational "toolbox" for the common calculations needed to perform a variety of chromatographic and spectroscopic analyses. While the Mathematica software is needed to run the Tutorials, it can be applied to any number of additional mathematical or scientific applications.

Advanced Tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences Animations, Simulations, and Calculations Using Mathematica_(r) Edited by Charles Pidgeon This unique book and computer disk package will help students and researchers in the biomedical sciences reach a deeper understanding of chemical and physicochemical processes as they relate to analytical methods, drug action, drug discovery, and biomedical science in general. Mathematica software permits rapid numerical, symbolic, and graphic calculations that allow complex concepts to be displayed, animated, and discussed in the same document. Advanced Tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences has been written using Mathematica as a tool to display, animate, and calculate various physical phenomena: No programming by the instructor or the reader is needed. The Tutorials are interactive in that the user not only enters, but also may change the values of parameters within the code in order to better understand difficult concepts. Mathematica software is required to execute the code in each tutorial and to save or edit the files, but the MathReader software included on each computer disk allows the user to view the tutorials and animate the graphics without Mathematica. The code written in each chapter may be used on real experimental data, so that the Tutorials serve not only as an interactive learning method, but also as a data analysis method after the lesson is learned. The computer disks included in Advanced Tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences thus continue to serve the researcher as a computational "toolbox" for the common calculations needed to perform a variety of chromatographic and spectroscopic analyses, i.e., Gaussian distributions, drug analysis, band movement through columns, resolution and column efficiency, equilibrium at chromatography surfaces, van Deemter equation, Fourier analysis, and nuclear precession and T_1 measurements in NMR. Advanced Tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences is intended for students and researchers in the fields of pharmacology, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, or other biomedical sciences. Instructors in schools of pharmacy will find it a superb tool for teaching complex physical principles in the classroom, as well a supplement for instruction outside the classroom to make learning relatively difficult material more enjoyable. Minimum system requirements: Intended for use primarily with 60 MHz Macintosh computers with at least 8 Mbytes of memory (16 Mbytes preferred). Requires separate purchase of Mathematica software, available from Wolfram Research, Inc., 100 Trade Center Dr., Champaign, IL 61820, USA; Wolfram Research Europe, Ltd., 10 Blenheim Office Park, Lower Rd., Long Hamborough, Oxfordshire, OX8 8LN UK; Wolfram Research Asia Ltd., Izumi Bldg 8F, 3-2-15 Misaki-cho, Chiyodo-Ku, Tokyo 101, Japan. Also available Tutorials for the Biomedical Sciences Animations, Simulations, and Calculations Using Mathematica_(r) Charles Pidgeon, ed. Softcover.
