Makoto Sato ... 213 pages - Language: ‎English - Publisher: ‎Springer; (January, 2023) - ISBN-10: 9811982562 - ISBN-13: ‎978-9811982569.

This book helps the reader make use of the mathematical models of biological phenomena starting from the basics of programming and computer simulation. Computer simulations based on a mathematical model enable us to find a novel biological mechanism and predict an unknown biological phenomenon. Mathematical biology could further expand the progress of modern life sciences. Although many biologists are interested in mathematical biology, they do not have experience in mathematics and computer science. An educational course that combines biology, mathematics, and computer science is very rare to date. Published books for mathematical biology usually explain the theories of established mathematical models, but they do not provide a practical explanation for how to solve the differential equations included in the models, or to establish such a model that fits with a phenomenon of interest.

MATLAB is an ideal programming platform for the beginners of computer science. This book starts from the very basics about how to write a programming code for MATLAB (or Octave), explains how to solve ordinary and partial differential equations, and how to apply mathematical models to various biological phenomena such as diabetes, infectious diseases, and heartbeats. Some of them are original models, newly developed for this book. Because MATLAB codes are embedded and explained throughout the book, it will be easy to catch up with the text. In the final chapter, the book focuses on the mathematical model of the proneural wave, a phenomenon that guarantees the sequential differentiation of neurons in the brain. This model was published as a paper from the author’s lab (Sato et al., PNAS 113, E5153, 2016), and was intensively explained in the book chapter “Notch Signaling in Embryology and Cancer”, published by Springer in 2020. This book provides the reader who has a biological background with invaluable opportunities to learn and practice mathematical biology.

Through four previous editions of Advanced Engineering Mathematics with MATLAB, the author presented a wide variety of topics needed by today's engineers. The fifth edition of that book, available now, has been broken into two parts: topics currently needed in mathematics courses and a new stand-alone volume presenting topics not often included in these courses and consequently unknown to engineering students and many professionals. The overall structure of this new book consists of two parts: transform methods and random processes. Built upon a foundation of applied complex variables, the first part covers advanced transform methods, as well as z-transforms and Hilbert transforms--transforms of particular interest to systems, communication, and electrical engineers. This portion concludes with Green's function, a powerful method of analyzing systems.

The second portion presents random processes--processes that more accurately model physical and biological engineering. Of particular interest is the inclusion of stochastic calculus. The author continues to offer a wealth of examples and applications from the scientific and engineering literature, a highlight of his previous books. As before, theory is presented first, then examples, and then drill problems. Answers are given in the back of the book. This book is all about the future: The purpose of this book is not only to educate the present generation of engineers but also the next. The main strength is the text is written from an engineering perspective. The majority of my students are engineers. The physical examples are related to problems of interest to the engineering students.
