More About This Textbook
Overview
The author explores evolution algebras, which lie between algebras and dynamical systems. Readers learn the foundations of evolution algebras theory and its applications in nonMendelian genetics and Markov chains. They’ll also discover evolution algebras’ connections with other mathematical fields, including graph theory, group theory, shastic processes, dynamical systems, knot theory, 3manifolds, and the IharaSelberg zeta function.
Editorial Reviews
From the Publisher
From the reviews:
"The book introduces a new class of nonassociative algebras, called evolution algebras, and discusses in detail many applications of evolution algebras in stochastic processes and genetics. … The book under review is suitable both for graduate students and researchers with interest in the theoretical biology, genetics, Markov process, graph theory, and nonassociative algebras and their applications. The text contains a clear, detailed and selfcontained exposition of evolution algebras."(Fouad Zitan, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1136 (14), 2008)
