About this book

Introduction

Geometry of Biological Time deals with dynamics of processes that repeat themselves regularly. Such rhythmic return through a cycle of change is an ubiquitous principle of organization in living systems. In this revised and updated edition the author plans to extend the thread from 1980 to the present concentrating on areas which he personally feels have been interesting and where he feels there will be much activity in the future. This involves going through spatial biochemical, electrophysiological, and organismic dynamical systems and patterns that were discovered by pursuing the theme of phase singularities that the original book introduced. In particular the work on excitability in cell membranes has been thoroughly updated as have the references throughout the book.
