The fields of biological and medical physics and biomedical engineering are broad, multidisciplinary and dyanmic. They lie at the crossroads of frontier - search in physics, biology, chemistry, and medicine. The Biological & Me- cal Physics/Biomedical Engineering Series is intended to be comprehensive, covering a broad range of topics important to the study of the physical, che- cal and biological sciences. Its goal is to provide scientists and engineers with textbooks, monographs, and reference works to address the growing need for information. Books in the series emphasize established and emergent areas of science - cluding molecular, membrane, and mathematical biophysics; photosynthetic - ergy harvesting and conversion; information processing; physical principles of genetics; sensory communications; automata networks, neural networks, and cellular automata. Equally important will be coverage of applied aspects of b- logical and medical physics and biomedical engineering such as molecular el- tronic components and devices, biosensors, medicine, imaging, physical prin- ples of renewable energy production, advanced prostheses, and environmental control and engineering.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This is an in-depth study of the dynamics and physics of coronary blood flow ... . The author who is an engineer/mathematician spares no details and is very, very thorough in his exposition. ... I would like to commend the author for providing many helpful figures and flow charts to ease the transition from concepts to mathematics and beyond. ... you will enjoy it for its content and retain it as a valuable reference." (H. W. Vayo, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2006 g)

"This book is devoted to the study of a very complex subject - the dynamics and physics of coronary blood flow - which the author defines as the blood flow to the heart for its own metabolic needs. ... This book deserves high praise. The clarity of its writing and the sequence and demonstrated mastery of the contents make it `an easy to read' and `an easy to understand' fascinating text. I strongly recommend it to all researchers in the field and to all libraries." (Harold Ramkissoon, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1121 (23), 2007)
