Mathematics for the Biological Sciences
Edition United States ed
OverviewThis volume reviews differential and integral calculus for functions of one variable, differential calculus for several variables, differential equations, probability, difference equations, and matrices -- all with special emphasis on applications in the life sciences. *Covers a broad range of examples from the biological and medical sciences. *Focuses on the use of theorems to solve problems, rather than on the mechanics of proving theorems. *Includes sections on model-building to help readers apply mathematics to problems in the biological sciences. *Outlines step-by-step procedures for solving "word problems." *Features many worked examples - both purely algebraic and biological. *Presents rules for differentiation in verbal form. *Provides an introductory pre-calculus review chapter.
