Fractals and Chaos Simplified for the Life Sciences

By Larry S. Liebovitch

Fractals and chaos are presently producing pleasure throughout a variety of medical and scientific disciplines. Biomedical investigators, graduate scholars, and undergraduates have gotten more and more drawn to utilizing fractals and chaos (nonlinear dynamics) to numerous difficulties in biology and drugs. This obtainable textual content lucidly explains those innovations and illustrates their makes use of with examples from biomedical examine. the writer offers the cloth in a really detailed, simple demeanour which avoids technical jargon and doesn't imagine a robust history in arithmetic. The textual content makes use of a step by step procedure by means of explaining one idea at a time in a collection of dealing with pages, with textual content at the left web page and pics at the correct web page; the photos pages might be copied at once onto transparencies for educating. excellent for classes in biostatistics, fractals, mathematical modeling of organic structures, and comparable classes in medication, biology, and utilized arithmetic, Fractals and Chaos Simplified for the existence Sciences also will function an invaluable source for scientists in biomedicine, physics, chemistry, and engineering.
