about

Essential for all biology and biomathematics courses, this textbook provides students with a fresh perspective of quantitative techniques in biology in a field where virtually any advance in the life sciences requires a sophisticated mathematical approach. An Invitation to Biomathematics, expertly written by a team of experienced educators, offers students a solid understanding of solving biological problems with mathematical applications. This text succeeds in enabling students to truly experience advancements made in biology through mathematical models by containing computer-based hands-on laboratory projects with emphasis on model development, model validation, and model refinement.

The supplementary work, Laboratory Manual of Biomathematics is available separately ISBN 0123740223, or as a set ISBN: 0123740290)

  • Provides a complete guide for development of quantification skills crucial for applying mathematical methods to biological problems
  • Includes well-known examples from across disciplines in the life sciences including modern biomedical research
  • Explains how to use data sets or dynamical processes to build mathematical models
  • Offers extensive illustrative materials
  • Written in clear and easy-to-follow language without assuming a background in math or biology
  • A laboratory manual is available for hands-on, computer-assisted projects based on material covered in the text
