This book is the first unified systemic description of dissipative phenomena, taking place in biology, and non-dissipative (conservative) phenomena, which is more relevant to physics. Fully updated and revised, this new edition extends our understanding of nonlinear phenomena in biology and physics from the extreme / optimal perspective.



  • The first book to provide understanding of physical phenomena from a biological perspective and biological phenomena from a physical perspective
  • Discusses emerging fields and analysis
  • Provides examples
