Rotational Diffusion in a Magnetic Field and Its Possible Magnetobiological Implications

  • Maximo Valentinuzzi


In trying to interpret old and new experiments on the action of magnetic fields upon biological growth and metabolic processes, as well as in order to design new experimental research and to predict possible results, several physical-chemical concepts and mathematical developments have to be taken into account.
