Overview

This accessible text lucidly explains these concepts and illustrates t heir uses with examples from biomedical research. The author presents the material in a very unique, straightforward manner which avoids tec hnical jargon and does not assume a strong background in mathematics. The text uses a step-by-step approach by explaining one concept at a t ime in a set of facing pages, with text on the left page and graphics on the right page; the graphics pages can be copied directly onto tran sparencies for teaching. Ideal for courses in biostatistics, fractals, mathematical modeling of biological systems, and related courses in m edicine, biology, and applied mathematics, Fractals and Chaos Simplifi ed for the Life Sciences will also serve as a useful resource for scie ntists in biomedicine, physics, chemistry, and engineering.

This looks like a powerpoint presentation slide set blown up 300% to fill pages, with accompanying presentation notes only. It does not have complete thoughts written out.
