Summary and Info
This volume is an interdisciplinary book which introduces, in a very readable way, state-of-the-art research in the fundamental topics of mathematical modelling of Biosystems. These topics include the study of Biological Growth and its mechanisms, the coupling of pattern to form via theorems of Differential Geometry, the human immunodeficiency virus dynamics, and the inverse folding problem and the possibility of analysing true protein backbone flexibility. The Biclustering techniques for the organization of microarray data are covered, along with the analytical approach to the modelling of biomolecular structure via Steiner trees, the action of biocides on resistance mechanisms of mutated and phenotypic bacteria strains, and a description of the fundamental processes for the distribution and abundances of species towards a unified theory of Ecology. A special introduction to Protein Physics aims to explain the all-or-none first order phase transitions from native to denatured states.
