Everyone who uses or is interested in chaos theory needs this contemporary science collector's volume. The classic works of biomedical research based on chaos theory are presented for medical researchers, science historians, engineers, computational biologists, and health clinicians and practitioners. The multidisciplinary biomedical reports focus primarily on the cardiopulmonary and nervous systems, with chaos theory also applied to neonatology and radiology. In concert with the Sir Issac Newton quote: If I have seen further than others, it is by standing opun the shoulders of giants, This volume is designed to be a ladder to future research accomplishments.
