BIOPHYSICS ROLAND GLASER PDF

About this book Introduction Biophysics is the science of physical principles underlying all processes of life, including the dynamics and kinetics of biological systems. This fully revised 2nd English edition is an introductory text that spans all steps of biological organization, from the molecular, to the organism level, as well as influences of environmental factors. In response to the enormous progress recently made, especially in theoretical and molecular biophysics, the author has updated the text, integrating new results and developments concerning protein folding and dynamics, molecular aspects of membrane assembly and transport, noise-enhanced processes, and photo-biophysics. The advances made in theoretical biology in the last decade call for a fully new conception of the corresponding sections.

The advances made in theoretical biology in the last decade call for a fully new conception of the corresponding sections. Thus, the book provides the background needed for fundamental training in biophysics and, in addition, offers a great deal of advanced biophysical knowledge.

About the authors Born in Jena, Germany in From to , scientist at the Atomic Energy Agency in Berlin research: aquatic radioecology , and from to scientist at the Institute of Cardiology, Academy of Science in Berlin with a focus on ion transport. From to assistant professor in Jena, from to full professor of biophysics at the Humboldt University, Berlin research: biophysics of cell surfaces, shape and ionic states of erythrocytes, electro-manipulation of cells. He has also worked as an emeritus adviser for various organizations in the field of electromagnetic safety.

This book is the result of over thirty-five years of teaching. Following the first German edition in , the textbook was continuously revised and updated in line with his experience from teaching as well as innumerable discussions with students and colleagues. The fourth German edition was published in , and a fifth revised version was then published as the first English edition in With this revised second English edition, the author reflects the enormous strides made in biophysics, especially in the fields of molecular and theoretical biophysics.

While the book remains a basic textbook and provides the introductory background needed for fundamental training in biophysics, it also offers new insights into recent advances in biophysical knowledge. I really recommend this book for all biology and life science students and I ask for the reader to pay attention to the problems and examples, because there is the true gold. This is fine book that should be accessible to students in upper-level courses. Summing Up: Highly recommended.

Biophysics

The final prices may differ from the prices shown due to specifics of VAT rules About this Textbook The message of this book is that biophysics is the science of physical principles underlying the "phenomenon life" on all levels of organization. Rather than teaching "physics for biologists" or "physical methods applied to biology", it regards its subject as a defined discipline with its own network of ideas and approaches. The book starts by explaining molecular structures of biological systems, various kinds of atomic, molecular and ionic interactions, movements, energy transfer, self organization of supramolecular structures and dynamic properties of biological membranes. It then goes on to introduce the biological organism as a non-equilibrium system, before treating thermodynamic concepts of osmotic and electrolyte equilibria as well as currents and potential profiles. It continues with topics of environmental biophysics and such medical aspects as the influence of electromagnetic fields or radiation on living systems and the biophysics of hearing and noice protection. The book concludes with a discussion of system analyses, including models of neural processes as well as of ecological interactions, growth, differentiation and evolution.
