Modelling Methodology for Physiology and Medicine, Second Edition,offers a unique approach and an unprecedented range of coverage of the state-of-the-art, advanced modeling methodology that is widely applicable to physiology and medicine. The second edition, which is completely updated and expanded, opens with a clear and integrated treatment of advanced methodology for developing mathematical models of physiology and medical systems. Readers are then shown how to apply this methodology beneficially to real-world problems in physiology and medicine, such as circulation and respiration.

The focus ofModelling Methodology for Physiology and Medicine, Second Edition,is the methodology that underpins good modeling practice. It builds upon the idea of an integrated methodology for the development and testing of mathematical models. It covers many specific areas of methodology in which important advances have taken place over recent years and illustrates the application of good methodological practice in key areas of physiology and medicine. It builds on work that the editors have carried out over the past 30 years, working in cooperation with leading practitioners in the field.

  • Builds upon and enhances the reader's existing knowledge of modeling methodology and practice
  • Editors are internationally renowned leaders in their respective fields
  • Provides an understanding of modeling methodologies that can address real problems in physiology and medicine and achieve results that are beneficial either in advancing research or in providing solutions to clinical problems
Carson and Cobelli are leaders in the field of physiological modelling, with extensive research experience and publication track records. They also have extensive experience teaching this material to a range of levels for both technical and clinical audiences.
