Covers problems in ecology, evolutionary biology, and neurobiology

This volume contains lectures presented at the 15th annual meeting on mathematical biology, organized by a joint AMS-SIAM committee, as part of the mathematical activities at the annual AAAS meeting, held January 7, 1982, in Washington, D.C. The meeting was devoted to neurobiology, and was very ably organized by Robert M. Miura. Neurobiology is a very large field, and there are many applications of mathematics that could have been selected. Miura and the committee wisely chose to concentrate on one or two topics concerned mainly with the properties of individual neurons and their processes. In summary, this is an excellent collection of articles on some of the more interesting and timely problems of cellular neurobiology. The articles, especially those by Plant, Rinzel, and Nicholson and Phillips, are all excellent expositions of important problems. I recommend this volume to anyone interested in mathematical neurobiology.

First published in 1980. CRC Press is an imprint of Taylor & Francis.

This dictionary includes a number of mathematical, statistical and computing terms and their definitions to assist geoscientists and provide guidance on the methods and terminology encountered in the literature. Each technical term used in the explanations can be found in the dictionary which also includes explanations of basics, such as trigonometric functions and logarithms. There are also citations from the relevant literature to show the term’s first use in mathematics, statistics, etc. and its subsequent usage in geosciences.
