Mathematical Biology: A Conference on Theoretical Aspects of Molecular Science is a collection of papers that covers various investigations in mathematical biology. The text tackles a wide range of topics, from biological equation models up to electrical phenomena in biological systems. The coverage of the text includes existence of a periodic solution for a two predator-one prey ecosystem modeled on a chemostat; mathematical treatment of nerve conduction and cardiac purkinje fibers; and models of positional information. The book will be of great interest to students, researchers, and practitioners of biological sciences.
