This book provides a modern investigation into the bifurcation phenomena of physical and engineering problems. Systematic methods  based on asymptotic, probabilistic, and grouptheoretic standpoints  are used to examine experimental and computational data from numerous examples (soil, sand, kaolin, concrete, domes). Engineers may find this book, with its minimized mathematical formalism, to be a useful introduction to modern bifurcation theory. For mathematicians, static bifurcation theory for finitedimensional systems, as well as its implications for practical problems, is illuminated by the numerous examples.

 Summary

For sophomorelevel courses in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering, and related fields. A unifying, interdisciplinary approach to the fundamentals of bioengineering Now in its 2nd Edition, Bioengineering Fundamentals combines engineering principles with technical rigor and a problemsolving focus, ultimately taking a unifying, interdisciplinary approach to the conservation laws that form the foundation of bioengineering: mass, energy, charge, and momentum. The text emphasizes fundamental concepts, practical skill development, and problemsolving strategies while incorporating a wide array of examples and case studies. This 2nd Edition has been updated and expanded with new and clarified content, plus new homework and example problems.

 Description
 Book — xii, 187 pages ; 24 cm.
 Summary

The textbook is based on the lectures of the course "Synthetic Biology" for Master's students in biology and biotechnology at the Harbin Institute of Technology. The goal of the textbook is to explain how to make mathematical models of synthetic gene circuits that will, later on, drive the circuit implementation in the lab. Concepts such as kinetics, circuit dynamics and equilibria, stochastic and deterministic simulations, parameter analysis and optimization are presented. At the end of the textbook, a chapter contains a description of structural motifs (e.g. positive and negative feedback loops, Boolean gates) that carry out specific functions and can be combined into larger networks. Moreover, several chapters show how to build up (an analyse, where possible) models for synthetic gene circuits with four different opensource software i.e. COPASI, XPPAUT, BioNetGeN, and Parts & PoolsProMoT.

 Summary

 Stars, seconds, cylinders, and steam
 Extremely flat and incredibly close
 A gun in every home, a clock in every cabin
 On the verge of a more perfect world
 The irresistible lure of the highway
 Precision and peril, six miles high
 Through a looking glass, distinctly
 Where am I, and what is the time?
 Squeezing beyond boundaries
 On the necessity for equipoise
 The measure of all things.
"Precision is so essential a component of modern human life and existence that we seldom stop to think about it. [This book] examines the relatively recent development of the notion of precisionthe people who developed it and the ways in which it has shaped the modern worldand the challenges posed and losses risked by our veneration and pursuit of increasingly precise tools and methods. The history of precision as a concept and in practice begins in England with its originators: John Wilkinson, Henry Maudslay, Joseph Bramah, Jesse Ramsden, and Joseph Whitworth. It was Thomas Jefferson who first exported their discoveries to the fledgling United States, setting the nation on its course to become a manufacturing titan. At the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, standards of measurement were established, giving way to the development of machine toolsmachines that make machines. Eventually, the application of precision tools and methods in the development of guns, glass, mirrors, lenses, and cameras gave way to further advancements, including gene splicing, microchips, and the Hadron Collider. The fundamental questions at the heart of The Perfectionists are these: Why is precision important? What are the different tools we use to measure it? Who has invented and perfected it? Has the pursuit of the ultraprecise in so many facets of human life blinded us to other things of equal value, such as an appreciation for the ageold traditions of craftsmanship, art, and high culture? Are we missing something that reflects the world as it is, rather than the world as we think we would wish it to be? And can the precise and the natural coexist in society?"Jacket.
