Divided into two volumes, the book begins with a pedagogical presentation of some of the basic theory, with chapters on biochemical reactions, diffusion, excitability, wave propagation and cellular homeostasis. The second, more extensive part discusses particular physiological systems, with chapters on calcium dynamics, bursting oscillations and secretion, cardiac cells, muscles, intercellular communication, the circulatory system, the immune system, wound healing, the respiratory system, the visual system, hormone physiology, renal physiology, digestion, the visual system and hearing.

New chapters on Calcium Dynamics, Neuroendocrine Cells and Regulation of Cell Function have been included.

From the reviews:

"Probably the best book ever written on the subject of mathematical physiology ... It contains numerous exercises, enough to keep even the most diligent student busy, and a comprehensive list of approximately 600 references ... highly recommended to anybody interested in mathematical or theoretical physiology." Mathematical Reviews

"In addition to being good reading, excellent pedagogy, and appealing science, the exposition is lucid and clear, and there are many good problem sets to choose from ... Highly recommended." Journal of the Society of Mathematical Biology

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This massive new edition ... offers an introduction to mathematical physiology that emphasizes work conducted by Keener (Univ. of Utah), Sneyd (Univ. of Auckland, New Zealand), and others over the past 20 years. It is designed as a course resource for beginning graduate students who have ... some mathematical background. ... Keener and Sneyd have made very reasonable choices in their subject selections. This work is an admirable resource for students with the appropriate prerequisites. Chapters include exercises ... . Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students." (P. Cull, Choice, Vol. 46 (10), June, 2009)

"The texts provide a comprehensive summary of the important concepts in mathematical physiology. ... For those actively working in the field of mathematical physiology ... is a must have. The new edition includes updated descriptions, new models, and new figures adding to the breadth of the first edition. One of the most beneficial aspects ... is the addition of about a decade's worth of work and references (over 350!). ... more advanced questions were added giving more flexibility when used as a course textbook." (Joe Latulippe, The Mathematical Association of America, July, 2009)

"This second edition of Mathematical physiology, ten years after the first one ... provides information on recent works in mathematical physiology. ... It is a very interesting book dealing with the interdisciplinary field of mathematical physiology. ... Mathematical physiology, with the consequent number of exercises given at the end of each chapter, could be used in particular for a full-year course in mathematical physiology. It is also suitable for researchers and graduate students in applied mathematics, bioengineering and physiology." (Fabien Crauste, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 b)
