Selected Books

Develops the mathematical tools essential for students in the life sciences to describe interacting systems and predict their behavior.

Examines ways in which research conducted by biological anthropologists can enrich our understanding of variation in human health outcomes.

Basic concepts such as stress and strain, Young’s modulus, force coefficients, viscosity, and Reynolds number are introduced in early chapters in a self-contained format, making them quickly available for learning and as a refresher.

Deals with neurofeedback, explaining the functioning of the tool, its action on the equilibration of neural activity, and the differences between classical and dynamic systems.

In the first chapter of Topics in Mathematical Biology general principles about coupled and quiescent systems are derived, including results on shrinking periodic orbits and stabilization of oscillations via quiescence. In subsequent chapters classical biological models are presented in detail and challenged by the introduction of quiescence.
