Advances in Heat Transfer

This is a timely and excellent summary of three areas of bioheat transfer that have been the subject of considerable interest over the past decade: the search for a fundamental tissue energy equation to describe microvascular blood perfusion, the modeling of cellular and tissue processes at high and low temperatures, and a summary of the latest temperature measurement techniques for living tissue. All three contributions provide a much needed summary of the state of the art that would be equally useful to both new and experienced researchers in these areas. The short historical introduction by Chato is also delightful.

This book is wholeheartedly recommended to the researcher, and to the student who wishes to commence work in a particular field.
--JOURNAL OF MECHANICAL WORKING TECHNOLOGY
The articles, which serve as a broad review for experts in the field, willalso 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.
