Game theory provides a powerful mathematical framework that can accommodate the preferences and requirements of various stakeholders in a given process as regards the outcome of the process. The chapters' contents in this book will give an impetus to the application of game theory to the modeling and analysis of modern communication, biology engineering, transportation, etc...
Prokaryotic cyanobacteria express robust circadian (daily) rhythms under the control of a central clock. Recent studies shed light on the mechanisms governing circadian rhythms in cyanobacteria and highlight key differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic clocks.

Rhythmic gene-expression patterns
Circadian biological clocks are self-sustained biochemical oscillators. Their properties include an intrinsic time constant of approximately 24 hours, temperature compensation (so that they run...

As you worked your way through high school, or otherwise worked to prepare
yourself for college, you were probably unaware that an information
explosion was taking place in the field of biology. This explosion, brought on
by advances in biotechnology and communicated by faster, more powerful
computers, has allowed scientists to gather data more quickly and disseminate
data to colleagues in the global scientific community with the click of a
MATLAB (Matrix Laboratory) is a matrix-oriented tool for mathematical
programming, applied for numerical computation and simulation purposes. Together
with its dynamic simulation toolbox Simulink, as a graphical environment for the
simulation of dynamic systems, it has become a very powerful tool suitable for a large
number of applications in many areas of research and development.
Clearly and elegantly presented, Mathematical Methods in Science and Engineering provides a coherent treatment of mathematical methods, bringing advanced mathematical tools to a multidisciplinary audience. The growing interest in interdisciplinary studies has brought scientists from many disciplines such as physics, mathematics, chemistry, biology, economics, and finance together, which has increased the demand for courses in upper-level mathematical techniques.
Biological Risk Engineering — Infection Control and Decontamination provides a compendium of biological risk management information. Biological risk is of concern to us all. The biological risks we face vary and include biological contamination within our environment and, more personally, biological risk to ourselves through disease or the potential for disease.
This book deals with a subset of biological risk agents defined as bacteria, molds, yeasts, viruses, and prions. The term biologicals refers to these agents.
Bioinformatics ? Biology and Computers ? What do they have to do with each other?
I suppose that this question could have been raised even in 19th century when
technologies of computers and biology were just emerging. At one city in France the
great Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) was studying how fermentation of alcohol was
linked to the existence of a specific microorganism. In another city in England,
equally great Charles Babbage (1791-1871) was oiling his Analytical Engine in which
Ada Lovelace, a mathematician who understood Babbage's vision, was trying to
calculate the Bernoulli numbers.
Biofuels Engineering Process Technology has many contents: Harvesting Energy from Biochemical Reactions, Microbial Modeling of Biofuel Production, Biofuel Feedstocks, Ethanol Production, Biodiesel, Biological Production of Hydrogen, Microbial Fuel Cells.
The most important trend in biological engineering is the dynamic range of scales at
which biotechnology is now able to integrate with biological processes. An explosion
in micro/nanoscale technology is allowing the manufacture of nanoparticles for drug
delivery into cells, miniaturized implantable microsensors for medical diagnostics, and
micro-engineered robots for on-board tissue repairs. This book aims to provide an upto-
date overview of the recent developments in biological engineering from diverse
aspects and various applications in clinical and experimental research....
During the last three decades, important advances have been made in the
available treatments for the loss of skeletal tissue as a result of trauma or
disease. The application of large skeletal allografts and total joint replacement
have become successful and reproducible treatment options. Unfortunately
there still is a significant incidence of failure because of mechanical or
This book is intended for engineering students who are grounded in basic physics, chemistry, and biology, and who have already been introduced to fluid mechanics. The material presented can readily be covered in a one-semester course.
From the beginnings of modern science, lakes have
fulfilled a focus of attention. Doubtless, this has
something to do with the lure that water bodies
hold for most of us, as well as for long having been a
source of food as well as water. Authors, from Aristotle
to Izaak Walton, committed much common
knowledge of the freshwater fauna to the formal
written record, so it is still a little surprising to realise
that the formal study of lakes—limnology
(from the Greek word, limnos, a lake)—is scarcely
more than a century in age (Forel 1895).
This Second Edition of the go-to reference combines the classical analysis and modern applications of applied mathematics for chemical engineers. The book introduces traditional techniques for solving ordinary differential equations (ODEs), adding new material on approximate solution methods such as perturbation techniques and elementary numerical solutions. It also includes analytical methods to deal with important classes of finite-difference equations. The last half discusses numerical solution techniques and partial differential equations (PDEs). The read...
Biological and medical phenomena are complex and intelligent. Our observations and
understanding of some of these phenomena have inspired the development of creative
theories and technologies in science. This process will continue to occur as new developments
in our understanding and perception of natural phenomena continue. Given
the complexity of our natural world this is not likely to end.
The third edition of Principles of Tissue Engineering attempts to incorporate the latest advances in the biology and design of tissues and organs and simultaneously to connect the basic sciences — including new discoveries in the field of stem cells — with the potential application of tissue engineering to diseases affecting specific organ systems.
Research and development in bioengineering and medical technology, conducted during
recent decades, have led to spectacular progress in clinical medicine. These
achievements have triggered an enormous increase in the number of courses offered in
the areas of bioengineering, clinical technology and medical informatics; nowadays,
most major universities offer curricula oriented towards these fields. The majority of
participants however come from engineering backgrounds and so modules dealing with
basic biological and medical sciences have been included.
Where the possibilities of a man reached the end, especially from the point of view of
technical solutions, the nature took over and formed our environment according to its
needs. Nowadays technical and engineering activities have a significantly greater
impact on the natural laws and rules once considered as changeless. Nonetheless we
have been approaching the same pattern that we followed in the past – we get inspired
by the nature.
