0 Reviews

In keeping with goal and style of the Handbook in Modern Biophysics series, the proposed book will maintain a chapter structure that contains two parts: concepts and biological application. The book also integrates all the chapters into a smooth, continuous discourse. The first and second chapters establish the mathematical methods and theoretical framework underpinning the different topics in the rest if the book. Other chapters will use the theoretical framework as a basis to discuss optical and NMR approaches. Each chapter will contain innovative didactic elements that facilitate teaching, self-study, and research preparation (key points, summary, exercise, references).

About the author (2010)

Thomas Jue is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at the University of California Davis. He is an internationally recognized expert in develop-ing and applying magnetic resonance techniques to study animal as well as human physi-ology in vivo and has published extensively in the field of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy, bioenergetics, cardiovascular regu-lation, exercise, and marine biology. As the Chair of the Biophysics Graduate Group Program at University of California Davis, he launched an initiative to establish a biophysics book series that will balance the physical-science/mathematics formalism with the biomedical perspective in order to develop an attractive education curriculum at the interface of physical science, engineering, mathematics, biology, and medicine. The Handbook of Modern Biophysics represents part of that curriculum development effort.
