About this Textbook

This introductory textbook is based on the premise that the foundation of good science is good data. The educational challenge addressed by this introductory textbook is how to present a sampling of the wide range of mathematical tools available for laboratory research to well-motivated students with a mathematical background limited to an introductory course in calculus.

Reviews

“This book, written in an engaging and intuitive style, is aimed at undergraduate biology students; its primary goal is to provide a clear, comprehensive overview of the appropriate mathematical instruments for data collection and analysis, both deterministic and stochastic. … the book also has the stated goal of contributing to a better shaping of the curricula for undergraduate biology education towards a better coverage of analytic, mathematical and computational methods.” (Paul Georgescu, zbMATH 1319.92001, 2015)
