Biologie für Einsteiger: Prinzipien des Lebens verstehen by Olaf Fritsche, Martin Lay

By Olaf Fritsche, Martin Lay

Leben ist ein äußerst komplexes Phänomen und läuft doch vom winzigen Bakterium bis zum studierenden Menschen stets nach den gleichen Prinzipien ab. Die Einführung in die Biologie erschließt Kapitel für Kapitel diese grundlegenden Mechanismen und Strukturen. Mit ihrem modernen didaktischen Konzept legt die Einführung in die Biologie dabei auf völlig neue Weise den Schwerpunkt auf die Vermittlung eines wirklichen Verständnisses für die Abläufe in Zellen und Organismen. Selbst schwierige Themen wie Stoffwechsel, Immunsystem und Genetik entwickeln sich so nahezu von selbst und sind für Lernende leichter in den Gesamtkomplex des Lebens einzuordnen. Dadurch entsteht ein neuer Blick auf das Leben, der motiviert und befähigt, noch tiefer einzusteigen in die bestimmende Wissenschaft des 21. Jahrhunderts. Die zweite, aktualisierte Auflage der Einführung in die Biologie

  • bietet einen umfassenden Überblick über die Strukturen und Abläufe des Lebens
  • entwickelt schrittweise die notwendigen Mechanismen für Leben, als konstruiere der Leser selbst von Grund auf ein Lebewesen
  • verschafft über das Verständnis der Prinzipien einen leichteren Zugang zum umfangreichen Faktenwissen der Biologie
  • zeigt die Gemeinsamkeiten aller Lebensformen über die systematischen Grenzen hinweg auf • vermittelt eine Sichtweise, mit welcher sich auch komplizierteste Zusammenhänge durchschauen lassen
  • didaktische Elemente wie vertiefende Boxen, Fragen und Spickzettel am Kapitelende spielen eine herausragende Rolle
  • von Olaf Fritsche aus einer Hand intestine verständlich verfasst, unterhaltsam geschrieben und mit Cartoons angereichert

Diffusion Processes and Related Topics in Biology by Luigi M. Ricciardi

By Luigi M. Ricciardi

These notes are according to a one-quarter path given on the division of Biophysics and Theoretical Biology of the college of Chicago in 1916. The path used to be directed to graduate scholars within the department of organic Sciences with pursuits in inhabitants biology and neurobiology. just a moderate acquaintance with likelihood and differential equations is needed of the reader. routines are interwoven with the textual content to motivate the reader to play a extra lively function and therefore facilitate his digestion of the fabric. One objective of those notes is to supply a heuristic strategy, utilizing as little arithmetic as attainable, to sure features of the idea of stochastic approaches which are being more and more hired in many of the inhabitants biol­ ogy and neurobiology literature. whereas the topic will be classical, the nov­ elty right here lies within the strategy and perspective, quite within the applica­ tions resembling the method of the neuronal firing challenge and its comparable dif­ fusion approximations. it's a excitement to thank Professors Richard C. Lewontin and Arnold J.F. Siegert for his or her curiosity and aid, and Mrs. Angell Pasley for her very good and cautious typing. I . PRELIMINARIES 1. Terminology and Examples contemplate an test laid out in: a) the experiment's results, ~, forming the gap S; b) definite subsets of S (called occasions) and via the possibilities of those events.
