Fractal Physiology (Methods in Physiology) By James B. Bassingthwaighte
1994 | 384 Pages | ISBN: 0195080130 | DJVU | 3 MB

"Highly readable and engaging....Provides a readable and detailed introduction to the anatomic and dynamical aspects of fractals in biomedicine....Should find an enthusiastic audience among biomedical researchers and clinicians wishing a rigorous yet friendly introduction to highly technical (and often misconstrued) concepts, as well as to physicists and applied mathematicians in search of physiologic grist for their nonlinear mills....Offers a tempting invitation to those who may wish to explore this brave new world of fractal physiology." -- "An excellent book in its clear writing, thorough coverage of the topic, and timeliness. This emerging field of study is proving to be of immense importance, yet it is still a mystery to most medical biologists. This book represents a fine first step in clarifying a complex idea for professionals who will need it in the future. It belongs in the hands of every medical biologist and should be a part of every academic medical library." -- "Particularly welcome features are the careful distinction between fractals and chaos, two topics that are sometimes referred to as if they were synomymous, and the lovely description of fractal time concepts pioneered by Michael F. Schlesinger and collaborators."-- "Exceedingly well-written, well-referenced, and well-illustrated....An excellent treatment of fractals and a good treatment of chaos in physiological systems."-- Physiological research on fractals and chaos. Fractals are objects or processes with multiple-scale properties. For physiologists or mathematicians.
