This is a timely and excellent summary of three areas of bioheat transfer that have been the subject of considerable interest ove the past decade. All three contributions provide a much needed summary of the state of the art thatwould be equally useful to both new and experienced researchers in these areas.

This book is wholeheartedly recommended to the researcher, and to the student who wishes to commence work in a particular field.
The articles, which serve as a broad review for experts in the field, will also be of great interest to non-specialists with only a general knowledge of the field who need to know the results of the latest research.
