Title:Rheophysics [electronic resource] : Matter in all its States
Author(s): Philippe Coussot
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents a unified view of the physicochemical origin of the mechanical behaviour of gases, simple solids and liquids, suspensions, polymers, emulsions, foams, and granular materials, along with techniques for measuringthat behaviour. Besid es molecular materials in all their classical gaseous, solid, or liquid states, we deal daily with a number of other materials made of coarser elements such as polymers, cells, grains, bubbles, and droplets. Theytake on the familiar appearance of paints, inks, cements, muds, foams, emulsions, toothpastes, gels, etc. These materials exhibit complex structures and sometimes amazing types of mechanical behaviour, often intermediate between thoseof a simple liquid and a simple solid. From a practical standpoi nt, the aim is to analyze their internal evolution (aging, restructuring, phase separation, etc.), then to formulate these materials in accordance with the desiredproperties, and thereby devise new materials. With that aim in mind, it is crucial to unders tand how these materials deform or flow, depending on the interactions and structures formed by the elements they contain. This book isintended for students as well as more advanced researchers in mechanics, physics, chemistry, and biology. The mathematic al formalism is reduced in order to focus on physical explanations

Title:Ultrafast Phenomena in Molecular Sciences [electronic resource] : Femtosecond Physics and Chemistry
Author(s): Rebeca Nalda
Luis Baares
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book presents the latest developments in Femtosecond Chemistry and Physics for the study of ultrafast photo-induced molecular processes.Molecular systems, from the simplest H2 molecule to polymers or biologicalmacromolecules, constitute central objects of interest for Physics, Chemistry and Biology, and despite the broad range of phenomena that they exhibit, they share some common behaviors. One of the most significant of those is that manyof the processes involving chemical transformation (nucl ear reorganization, bond breaking, bond making) take place in an extraordinarily short time, in or around the femtosecond temporal scale (1 fs = 10-15 s). A number of experimentalapproaches - very particularly the developments in the generation and manipu lation of ultrashort laser pulses - coupled with theoretical progress, provide the ultrafast scientist with powerful tools to understand matter and itsinteraction with light, at this spatial and temporal scale. This book is an attempt to reunite some of t he state-of-the-art research that is being carried out in the field of ultrafast molecular science, from theoretical developments,through new phenomena induced by intense laser fields, to the latest techniques applied to the study of molecular dynamics
Contents:From the Contents: Molecular movies from molecular frame photoelectron angular distribution (MFPAD) measurements

Title:Recent Advances in Broadband Dielectric Spectroscopy [electronic resource]
Author(s): Yuri P Kalmykov
Date:2013
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume considers experimental and theoretical dielectric studies of the structure and dynamics of complex systems. Complex systems constitute an almost universal class of materials including associated liquids, polymers,biomolecules, colloids, p orous materials, doped ferroelectric crystals, nanomaterials, etc. These systems are characterized by a new mesoscopic length scale, intermediate between molecular and macroscopic. The mesoscopic structuresof complex systems typically arise from fluctuati ons or competing interactions and exhibit a rich variety of static and dynamic behaviour. This growing field is interdisciplinary it complements solid state and statistical physics, andoverlaps considerably with chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, and biology. A common theme in complex systems is that while such materials are disordered on the molecular scale and homogeneous on the macroscopic scale,they usually possess a certain degree of order on an intermediate, or mesoscopic, scale due to the delicate balance of interaction and thermal effects. In the present Volume it is shown how the dielectric spectroscopy studies ofcomplex systems can be applied to determine both their structures and dynamics

Title:Brownian Dynamics at Boundaries and Interfaces [electronic resource] : In Physics, Chemistry, and Biology
Author(s): Zeev Schuss
Date:2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Brownian dynamics serve as mathematical models for the diffusive motion of microscopic particles of various shapes in gaseous, liquid, or solid environments. The renewed interest in Brownian dynamics is due primarily to their keyrole in molecular and cellular biophysics: diffusion of ions and molecules is the driver of all life. Brownian dynamics simulations are the numerical realizations of stochastic differential equations that model the functions ofbiological micro devices such as protein ionic ch annels of biological membranes, cardiac myocytes, neuronal synapses, and many more. Stochastic differential equations are ubiquitous models in computational physics, chemistry,biophysics, computer science, communications theory, mathematical finance theor y, and many other disciplines. Brownian dynamics simulations of the random motion of particles, be it molecules or stock prices, give rise to mathematicalproblems that neither the kinetic theory of Maxwell and Boltzmann, nor Einsteins and Langevins theori es of Brownian motion could predict. This book takes the readers on a journey that starts with the rigorous definition ofmathematical Brownian motion, and ends with the explicit solution of a series of complex problems that have immediate applications. It is aimed at applied mathematicians, physicists, theoretical chemists, and physiologists who areinterested in modeling, analysis, and simulation of micro devices of microbiology. The book contains exercises and worked out examples throughout

Note:Bayesian Networks in R with Applications in Systems Biology introduces the reader to the essential concepts in Bayesian network modeling and inference in conjunction with examples in the open-source statistical environment R. Thelevel of sophisticati on is gradually increased across the chapters with exercises and solutions for enhanced understanding and hands-on experimentation of key concepts. Applications focus on systems biology with emphasis on modelingpathways and signaling mechanisms from high throughput molecular data. Bayesian networks have proven to be especially useful abstractions in this regards as exemplified by their ability to discover new associations while validatingknown ones. It is also expected that the prevalence of publicly avai lable high-throughput biological and healthcare data sets may encourage the audience to explore investigating novel paradigms using the approaches presented in thebook

Note:Dihedral Fourier Analysis introduces the theory and applications necessary to study experimental data indexed by, or associated with, the points in a dihedral symmetry orbit. This book looks at experimental data and analyticalmodels indexed by certai n dihedral rotations and reversals realized as vector fields. Its particular relevance as a research tool in areas such as optical and molecular biology statisticsappears when formulated within the context ofsymmetry studies, which formally connects algeb raic and statistical reasoning together in one methodology for data summary and inference. Chapter 1 presents an overview of the theory and methods of dihedral analysis. It introduces datasets and examples defining and connecting the algebraic notions of symmetry with those of statistical summaries and inference. Chapter 2 includes the required algebraic aspects and data-analytic results. Chapters 3-6 offer applicationsof the methods presented in the text. This book is intended for data analysts of both t heoretical and applied statistics

Covered topics include distance matrix theory, Euclidean distance matrix completion, multispherical structure of distance matrices,geometric algebra, algebraic distance geometry theo ry, visualization of K-dimensional structures in the plane, graph rigidity, and theory of discretizable DGP. The second part of this volume presents mathematical and computationalproperties of methods developed to the problems discussed in the first porti on, including continuous methods (based on Gaussian and hyperbolic smoothing, difference of convex functions, semidefinite programming, branch-and-bound),discrete methods (based on branch-and-prune, geometric build-up, graph rigidity), and also heuristics methods (based on simulated annealing, genetic algorithms, tabu search, variable neighborhood search). Applications comprise thethird part of the book, which is mainly devoted to the application of DGP to NMR structure calculation. This is an important a nd strongly multidisciplinary application in biology and biomedicine

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complexity occurs in biological and synthetic systems alike. This general phenomenon has been addressed in recent publications by investigators in disciplines ranging from chemistry and biology to psychology and philosophy.Studies of complexity for m olecular scientists have focussed on breaking symmetry, dissipative processes, and emergence. Investigators in the social and medical sciences have focused on neurophenomenology, cognitive approaches andself-consciousness. Complexity in both structure and function is inherent in many scientific disciplines of current significance and also in technologies of current importance that are rapidly evolving to address global societalneeds. Several of these multifaceted scientific disciplines are addressed in th is book including complexity from the general and philosophical perspective, magnetic phenomena, control of self assembly and function in largemulticomponent clusters, application of theory to probe structure and mechanism in highly complex molecular spec ies, and the design of multifunctional nanoscale molecules of value in decontamination and solar fuels research. Eachchapter is both a review and addresses some ongoing challenges, thus each should provide a good preparation for further work in these high ly active areas of research endeavour.

Note:Arrangements of curves constitute fundamental structures that have been intensively studied in computational geometry. Arrangements have numerous applications in a wide range of areas examples include geographic informationsystems, robot motion plan ning, statistics, computer-assisted surgery and molecular biology. Implementing robust algorithms for arrangements is a notoriously difficult task, and the CGAL arrangements package is the first robust,comprehensive, generic and efficient implementation o f data structures and algorithms for arrangements of curves. This book is about how to use CGAL two-dimensional arrangements to solve problems. The authors first demonstrate thefeatures of the arrangement package and related packages using small example programs. They then describe applications, i.e., complete standalone programs written on top of CGAL arrangements used to solve meaningful problems forexample, finding the minimum-area triangle defined by a set of points, planning the motion of a polygon translating among polygons in the plane, computing the offset polygon, finding the largest common point sets under approximatecongruence, constructing the farthest-point Voronoi diagram, coordinating the motion of two discs moving among obstacles in the plane, and performing Boolean operations on curved polygons. The book contains comprehensiveexplanations of the solution programs, many illustrations, and detailed notes on further reading, and it is supported by a website that contains downloadable soft ware and exercises. It will be suitable for graduate students andresearchers involved in applied research in computational geometry, and for professionals who require worked-out solutions to real-life geometric problems. It is assumed that the reader is f amiliar with the C++ programming-language andwith the basics of the generic-programming paradigm

Note:Graphical models in their modern form have been around since the late 1970s and appear today in many areas of the sciences. Along with the ongoing developments of graphical models, a number of different graphical modelingsoftware programs have been w ritten over the years. In recent years many of these software developments have taken place within the R community, either in the form of new packages or by providing an R interface to existingsoftware. This book attempts to give the reader a gentle intro duction to graphical modeling using R and the main features of some of these packages. In addition, the bookprovides examples of how more advanced aspects of graphicalmodeling can be represented and handled within R. Topics covered in the seven chapters i nclude graphical models for contingency tables, Gaussian and mixed graphical models, Bayesian networks and modeling high dimensional data. SrenHjsgaard is Associate Professor in Statistics and Head of the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Aalborg Uni versity.

Note:In June 2010, a conference, Probability Approximations and Beyond, was held at the National University of Singapore (NUS), in honor of pioneering mathematician Louis Chen. Louis is perhaps best known for his elegant Poissonapproximation method, devel oped from Steins original approach to normal approximation. Another of his important contributions has been to turn Steins concentration inequality idea into an effective tool for providing error boundsfor the normal approximation in many settings, and in particular for sums of random variables exhibiting only local dependence. The conference attracted a large audience that came to pay homage to Louis, and to hear presentations bycolleagues who have worked with him in special ways over the past 40 years. The papers in this volume attest to how Louis Chens ideas have influenced and continue to influence such diverse areas as molecular biology and computerscience. He himself has developed applications of his work on Poisson approximation to problems of sign al detection in computational biology. The original papers contained in this book provide historical context for Louiss work,alongside commentary on some of his major contributions by noteworthy statisticians and mathematicians working today.

Title:Analysis of Phylogenetics and Evolution with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Emmanuel Paradis
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The increasing availability of molecular and genetic databases coupled with the growing power of computers gives biologists opportunities to address new issues, such as the patterns of molecular evolution, and re-assess old ones,such as the role of a daptation in species diversification. In the second edition, the book continues to integrate a wide variety of data analysis methods into a single and flexible interface: the R language. This open source languageis available for a wide range of computer s ystems and has been adopted as a computational environment by many authors of statistical software. Adopting R as a main tool for phylogenetic analyses will ease the workflow in biologists'data analyses, ensure greater scientific repeatability, and enhanc e the exchange of ideas and methodological developments. The second edition is completely updated, covering the full gamut of R packages for this area that have beenintroduced to the market since its previous publication five years ago. There is also a ne w chapter on the simulation of evolutionary data. Graduate students and researchers in evolutionary biology can use this book as areference for data analyses, whereas researchers in bioinformatics interested in evolutionary analyses will learn how to impl ement these methods in R. The book starts with a presentation of different R packages and gives a shortintroduction to R for phylogeneticists unfamiliar with this language. The basic phylogenetic topics are covered: manipulation of phylogenetic data, phyl ogeny estimation, tree drawing, phylogenetic comparative methods, and estimation ofancestral characters. The chapter on tree drawing uses R's powerful graphical environment. A section deals with the analysis of diversification with phylogenies, one of the author's favorite research topics. The last chapter is devotedto the development of phylogenetic methods with R and interfaces with other languages (C and C++). Some exercises conclude these chap

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Since its introduction in 1972, Steins method has offered a completely novel way of evaluating the quality of normal approximations. Through its characterizing equation approach, it is able to provide approximation errorbounds in a wide variety of si tuations, even in the presence of complicated dependence. Use of the method thus opens the door to the analysis of random phenomena arising in areas including statistics, physics, and molecular biology.Though Stein's method for normal approximation is now mature, the literature has so far lacked a complete self contained treatment. This volume contains thorough coverage of the methods fundamentals, includes a large number ofrecent developments in both theory and applications, and will help accelerate the appreciation, understanding, and use of Stein's method by providing the reader with the tools needed to apply it in new situations. It addressesresearchers as well as graduate students in Probability, Statistics and Combinatorics

Note:The study of structures and structure generating processes is a common concern of all scientific and technical disciplines. The present volume presents an interdisciplinary investigation of the different methods of analysis andmodelling which, while differing considerably in detail, usually have evolutionary adaption or development schemes at their core. The book naturally falls into three parts - a first part summarizing the transdisciplinary fundamentals,a second part discussing in detail case stud ies from various fields (production engineering, medicine, management, molecular biology, energy engineering, civil engineering, logistics, sociology, physics) and a shorter outlook on thetransdisciplinary perspective

Note:Research in Bayesian analysis and statistical decision theory is rapidly expanding and diversifying, making it increasingly more difficult for any single researcher to stay up to date on all current research frontiers. This bookprovides a review of c urrent research challenges and opportunities. While the book can not exhaustively cover all current research areas, it does include some exemplary discussion of most research frontiers. Topics include objectiveBayesian inference, shrinkage estimation and other decision based estimation, model selection and testing, nonparametric Bayes, the interface of Bayesian and frequentist inference, data mining and machine learning, methods forcategorical and spatio-temporal data analysis and posterior simulation met hods. Several major application areas are covered: computer models, Bayesian clinical trial design, epidemiology, phylogenetics, bioinformatics, climate modelingand applications in political science, finance and marketing. As a review of current research in Bayesian analysis the book presents a balance between theory and applications. The lack of a clear demarcation between theoretical andapplied research is a reflection of the highly interdisciplinary and often applied nature of research in Bayesian stat istics. The book is intended as an update for researchers in Bayesian statistics, including non-statisticians whomake use of Bayesian inference to address substantive research questions in other fields. It would also be useful for graduate students and re search scholars in statistics or biostatistics who wish to acquaint themselves with currentresearch frontiers.

Note:Review of previous edition: I am often asked by physicists, mathematicians and engineers to recommend a book that would be useful to get them started in computational molecular biology. I am also often approached by mycolleagues in computational biol ogy to recommend a solid textbook for a graduate course in the area. Tamar Schlick has written the book that I will be recommending to both groups. Tamar has done an amazing job in writing a book that isboth suitably accessible for beginners, and suitably rigorous for experts. J. J. Collins, Boston University, USA. Molecular modeling is now an important branch of modern biochemistry. Schlick has brought her uniqueinterdisciplinary expertise to the subject. One of the most distinguished characteristics of the book is that it makes the reading really fun and the material accessible. a crystal clear logical presentation . Schlickhas added a unique title to the collection of mathematical biology textbooks . a valuable introduction to the field of compu tational molecular modeling. It is a unique textbook .

Note:This volume is a collection of articles from the proceedings of the International School of Structural Biology and Magnetic Resonance 8th Course: Biophysics and the Challenges of Emerging Threats. This NATO Advance Study Institute(ASI) was held in Er ice at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture on 19 through 30 June 2007. The ASI brought together a diverse group of experts who bridged the fields of virology and biology, biophysics,chemistry and physics. Prominent lecturers a nd students from around the world representant a total of 24 countries participated in the NATO ASI organized by Professors Joseph Puglisi (Stanford University, USA) and Alexander Arseniev(Moscow, RU). The central hypothesis underlying this ASI was that i nterdisciplinary research, merging principles of physics, chemistry and biology, can drive new discovery in detecting and fighting bioterrorism agents, lead to cleanerenvironments, and help propel development in NATO partner countries. The ASI merged the related disciplines of biophysics, biochemistry and molecular structure to treat, detect, and understand emerging infectious diseases. It addressedthe treatment and detection of bioterrorism agents, and focused on critical partner country priorities in bi otechnology, materials, drug discovery and the environment. It provided crossroads discussing new technologies in biophysicsand structural biology, their implications pathogen detection and treatment and their role in partner country development. The ASI allowed deep and wide-ranging discussion between lecturers and students, providing overviews of keyareas and links between them. The range of topics represent the diversity of critical problems between structural biology, biochemistry and biophysics, in w hich lies the fertile ground of drug development, biotechnology and newmaterials

Note:This book assembles chapters from experts in the Biophysics of RNA to provide a broadly accessible snapshot of the current status of this rapidly expanding field. The 2006 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was awarded to thediscoverers of RNA int erference, highlighting just one example of a large number of non-protein coding RNAs. Because non-protein coding RNAs outnumber protein coding genes in mammals and other higher eukaryotes, it is now thought thatthe complexity of organisms is correlated w ith the fraction of their genome that encodes non-protein coding RNAs. Essential biological processes as diverse as cell differentiation, suppression of infecting viruses and parasitictransposons, higher-level organization of eukaryotic chromosomes, and g ene expression itself are found to largely be directed by non-protein coding RNAs. The biophysical study of these RNAs employs X-ray crystallography, NMR, ensembleand single molecule fluorescence spectroscopy, optical tweezers, cryo-electron microscopy, a nd other quantitative tools. This emerging field has begun to unravel the molecular underpinnings of how RNAs fulfill their multitude of rolesin sustaining cellular life. The physical and chemical understanding of RNA biology that results from biophysical studies is critical to our ability to harness RNAs for use in biotechnology and human therapy, a prospect that hasrecently spawned a multi-billion dollar industry

Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This unique book gives a comprehensive account of new mathematical tools used to solve polygon problems. In the 20th and 21st centuries, many problems in mathematics, theoretical physics and theoretical chemistry and morerecently in molecular biolog y and bio-informatics can be expressed as counting problems, in which specified graphs, or shapes, are counted. One very special class of shapes is that of polygons. These are closed, connected paths inspace. We usually sketch them in two-dimensions, but they can exist in any dimension. The typical questions asked include how many are there of a given perimeter?, how big is the average polygon of given perimeter?, andcorresponding questions about the area or volume enclosed. That is to say how many enclo sing a given area? and how large is an average polygon of given area? Simple though these questions are to pose, they are extraordinarilydifficult to answer. They are important questions because of the application of polygon, and the related problems of p olyomino and polycube counting, to phenomena occurring in the natural world, and also because the study of theseproblems has been responsible for the development of powerful new techniques in mathematics and mathematical physics, as well as in computer sc ience. These new techniques then find application more broadly. The book brings togetherchapters from many of the major contributors in the field. An introductory chapter giving the history of the problem is followed by fourteen further chapters describin g particular aspects of the problem, and applications to biology, tosurface phenomena and to computer enumeration methods

Note:There has been a long history of interaction between mathematics and physiology. This book looks in detail at a wide selection of mathematical models in physiology, showing how physiological problems can be formulated and studiedmathematically, and h ow such models give rise to interesting and challenging mathematical questions. With its coverage of many recent models it gives an overview of the field, while many older models are also discussed, to put themodern work in context. In this second edition the coverage of basic principles has been expanded to include such topics as stochastic differential equations, Markov models and Gibbs free energy, and the selection of models has alsobeen expanded to include some of the basic models of fluid transport, respiration/perfusion, blood diseases, molecular motors, smooth muscle, neuroendrocine cells, the baroreceptor loop, turboglomerular oscillations, blood clotting andthe retina. Owing to this extensive coverage, the second edition is published in two volu mes. This second volume deals with the physiology of systems and the first volume with the fundamental principles of cell physiology. The bookincludes detailed illustrations and numerous excercises with selected solutions. The emphasis throughout is on th e applications because of this interdisciplinary approach, this book will be of interest to students and researchers, notonly in mathematics, but also in bioengineering, physics, chemistry, biology, statistics and medicine.

Note:There has been a long history of interaction between mathematics and physiology. This book looks in detail at a wide selection of mathematical models in physiology, showing how physiological problems can be formulated and studiedmathematically, and h ow such models give rise to interesting and challenging mathematical questions. With its coverage of many recent models it gives an overview of the field, while many older models are also discussed, to put themodern work in context. In this second edition the coverage of basic principles has been expanded to include such topics as stochastic differential equations, Markov models and Gibbs free energy, and the selection of models has alsobeen expanded to include some of the basic models of fluid transport, respiration/perfusion, blood diseases, molecular motors, smooth muscle, neuroendrocine cells, the baroreceptor loop, turboglomerular oscillations, blood clotting andthe retina. Owing to this extensive coverage, the second edition is published in two volu mes. This first volume deals with the fundamental principles of cell physiology and the second with the physiology of systems. The book includesdetailed illustrations and numerous excercises with selected solutions. The emphasis throughout is on the appli cations because of this interdisciplinary approach, this book will be of interest to students and researchers, not only inmathematics, but also in bioengineering, physics, chemistry, biology, statistics and medicine. James Keener is a Distinguished Profes sor of Mathematics at the University of Utah. He and his wife live in Salt Lake City, but don't besurprised if he moves to the mountains. James Sneyd is the Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, where he has worked for the past six years. He lives with his wife and three children beside abeach, and would rather be swimming. Reviews of the first edition: ...probably the best book ever written on the interdiscipli

Title:Mathematical Biology [electronic resource] : An Introduction with Maple and Matlab
Author(s): Ronald W Shonkwiler
James Herod
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text presents mathematical biology as a field with a unity of its own, rather than only the intrusion of one science into another. It updates an earlier successful edition and greatly expands the concept of the computerbiology laboratory, giving students a general perspective of the field before proceeding to more specialized topics. The book focuses on problems of contemporary interest, such as cancer, genetics, and the rapidly growing field ofgenomics. It includes new chapters on parasites, ca ncer, and phylogenetics, along with an introduction to online resources for DNA, protein lookups, and popular pattern matching tools such as BLAST. In addition, the emerging field ofalgebraic statistics is introduced and its power illustrated in the conte xt of phylogenetics. A unique feature of the book is the integration of a computer algebra system into the flow of ideas in a supporting but unobtrusive role.Syntax for both the Maple and Matlab systems is provided in a tandem format. The use of a compute r algebra system gives the students the opportunity to examine what if scenarios, allowing them to investigate biological systems in away never before possible. For students without access to Maple or Matlab, each topic presented is complete. Graphic visu alizations are provided for all mathematical results. Mathematical Biology includes extensive exercises, problemsand examples. A year of calculus with linear algebra is required to understand the material presented. The biology presented proceeds from the study of populations down to the molecular level no previous coursework in biology isnecessary. The book is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students studying mathematics or biology and for scientists and researchers who wish to study the appli cations of mathematics and computers in the natural sciences

Title:Aspects of Physical Biology [electronic resource] : Biological Water, Protein Solutions, Transport and Replication

Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The application to Biology of the methodologies developed in Physics is attracting an increasing interest from the scientific community. It has led to the emergence of a new interdisciplinary field, called Physical Biology, withthe aim of reaching a better understanding of the biological mechanisms at molecular and cellular levels. Statistical Mechanics in particular plays an important role in the development of this new field. For this reason, the XXthsession of the famous Sitges Conference on Stati stical Physics was dedicated to Physical Biology: from Molecular Interactions to Cellular Behavior. As is by now tradition, a number of lectures were subsequently selected, expandedand updated for publication as lecture notes, so as to provide both a stat e-of-the-art introduction and overview to a number of subjects of broader interest and to favor the interchange and cross-fertilization of ideas betweenbiologists and physicists. The present volume focuses on three main subtopics (biological water, protei n solutions as well as transport and replication), presenting for each of the them the on-going debates on recent results. The roleof water in biological processes, the mechanisms of protein folding, the phases and cooperative effects in biological soluti ons, the thermodynamic description of replication, transport and neural activity, all are subjects that arerevised in this volume, based on new experiments and new theoretical interpretations

Title:Organic Computing [electronic resource]
Author(s): Rolf P Wrtz
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Organic Computing is a research field emerging around the conviction that problems of organization in complex systems in computer science, telecommunications, neurobiology, molecular biology, ethology, and possibly even sociologycan be tackled scient ifically in a unified way. From the computer science point of view, the apparent ease in which living systems solve computationally difficult problems makes it inevitable to adopt strategies observed in nature forcreating information processing machinery. In this book, the major ideas behind Organic Computing are delineated, together with a sparse sample of computational projects undertaken in this new field. Biological metaphors includeevolution, neural networks, gene-regulatory networks, networks of bra in modules, hormone system, insect swarms, and ant colonies. Applications are as diverse as system design, optimization, artificial growth, task allocation,clustering, routing, face recognition, and sign language understanding

Title:Evolution from Cellular to Social Scales [electronic resource]

Note:Evolution is a critical challenge for many areas of science, technology and development of society. The book reviews general evolutionary facts such as origin of life and evolution of the genome and clues to evolution throughsimple systems. Emerging areas of science such as systems biology and bio-complexity are founded on the idea that phenomena need to be understood in the context of highly interactive processes operating at different levels andon different scales. This is where physics meets compl exity in nature, and where we must begin to learn about complexity if we are to understand it. Similarly, there is an increasingly urgent need to understand and predict theevolutionary behavior of highly interacting man-made systems, in areas such as comm unications and transport, which permeate the modern world. The same applies to the evolution of human networks such as social, political and financialsystems, where technology has tended to vastly increase both the complexity and speed of interaction, whi ch is sometimes effectively instantaneous. The book contains reviews on such diverse areas as evolution experiments withmicroorganisms, the origin and evolution of viruses, evolutionary dynamics of genes and environment in cancer development, aging as an evolution-facilitating program, evolution of vision and evolution of financial markets
