About Book

It is meant to be used as a text for an advanced physics course that is offered to students of all disciplines. I hope that physics professors who might be reluctant to teach a traditional biophysics course will think about teaching it since physics is its main subject. Also, I hope that it will serve as a helpful resource for researchers in the fields of biology and medicine who need to brush up on their physics knowledge or who are looking for some recommendations for recent articles in various fields of biophysics. (Each chapter's bibliography is by no means comprehensive; still, the references should help you get right into a subject.) Graduate students in physics, biophysical sciences, biomedical engineering, physiology, and cell biology as well as undergraduates in a variety of areas who want to see more physics with biological applications take the course provided at the University of Minnesota.

In writing the book, which is primarily aimed at students who have only studied one year of physics, I have made an effort to follow the following guidelines:

Calculus is employed without hesitation. When a crucial calculus concept is applied for the first time, it is thoroughly reviewed. The appendices contain these reviews.

It is expected that the reader has taken physics and is familiar with the essential vocabulary. I have attempted to give a logical progression from fundamental concepts, but in a shorter format than what would be covered in an introductory course. Chapters 14 through 18 are an exception, where several findings from quantum mechanics are applied without being derived from first principles.

(My students have frequently said how surprised they are with the tempo change.)

In the majority of derivations, I have not purposefully omitted steps. After a few chapters, some readers might feel that the pace could be quicker. When I've suggested speeding up the class, my pupils have reacted angrily.

Each topic is approached in the most straightforward way feasible. I believe that complex mathematical concepts, like vector analysis or complex exponential notation, frequently obscure physical reality for students. While using Laplace transforms, I have observed electrical engineering students who were unable to explain to me what was happening in an RC circuit.
