About this book


The main concern of the book is analysis of biological processes, the final stage of which is mathematical modeling, i.e. quantitative presentation of the processes in rigorous mathematical terms. It is designated for non-mathematicians. Mathematical models can be compared with experimental data thus verifying the validity of the models and finally of the initial assumptions and verbal descriptions of the processes. The models (usually in the form of mathematical equations) are achieved painlessly via the schemes summarising verbal description of what is known concerning the processes. To solve the equations computer software is used. The step-by-step analysis leads to quite sophisticated models some of them being original. The book helps the reader to develop more general approach to the problems. It may be useful for experienced readers as well.
