Introduction to modeling for biosciences by David J Barnes( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computational modeling has become an essential tool for researchers in the biological sciences. Yet in biological modeling, there is no one technique that is suitable for all problems. Instead, different problems call for different approaches. Furthermore, it can be helpful to analyze the same system using a variety of approaches, to be able to exploit the advantages and drawbacks of each. In practice, it is often unclear which modeling approaches will be most suitable for a particular biological question - a problem that requires researchers to know a reasonable amount about a number of techniques, rather than become experts on a single one. Introduction to Modeling for Biosciences addresses this issue by presenting a broad overview of the most important techniques used to model biological systems. In addition to providing an introduction into the use of a wide range of software tools and modeling environments, this helpful text/reference describes the constraints and difficulties that each modeling technique presents in practice. This enables the researcher to quickly determine which software package would be most useful for their particular problem. Topics and features: Introduces a basic array of techniques to formulate models of biological systems, and to solve them Discusses agent-based models, stochastic modeling techniques, differential equations and Gillespies stochastic simulation algorithm Intersperses the text with exercises Includes practical introductions to the Maxima computer algebra system, the PRISM model checker, and the Repast Simphony agent modeling environment Contains appendices on Repast batch running, rules of differentiation and integration, Maxima and PRISM notation, and some additional mathematical concepts Supplies source code for many of the example models discussed, at the associated website http://www.cs.kent.ac.uk/imb/ This unique and practical work guides the novice modeler through realistic and concrete modeling projects, highlighting and commenting on the process of abstracting the real system into a model. Students and active researchers in the biosciences will also benefit from the discussions of the high-quality, tried-and-tested modeling tools described in the book, as well as thorough descriptions and examples. David J. Barnes is a lecturer in computer science at the University of Kent, UK, with a strong background in the teaching of programming. Dominique Chu is a lecturer in computer science at the University of Kent, UK. He is an expert in mathematical and computational modeling of biological systems, with years of experience in these subject fields

Guide to simulation and modeling for biosciences by David J Barnes( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This accessible text/reference presents a detailed introduction to the use of a wide range of software tools and modeling environments for use in the biosciences, as well as some of the fundamental mathematical background. The practical constraints and difficulties presented by each modeling technique are described in detail, enabling the researcher to determine quickly which software package would be most useful for their particular problem. This Guide to Simulation and Modeling for Biosciences is a fully updated and enhanced revision of the authors' earlier Introduction to Modeling for Biosciences. Written with the particular needs of the novice modeler in mind, this unique and helpful work guides the reader through realistic and concrete modeling projects, highlighting and commenting on the process of abstracting the real system into a model. Topics and features: Introduces a basic array of techniques to formulate models of biological systems, and to solve them Discusses agent-based models, stochastic modeling techniques, differential equations, spatial simulations, and Gillespie's stochastic simulation algorithm Provides exercises to help the reader sharpen their understanding of the topics Describes such useful tools as the Maxima algebra system, the PRISM model checker, and the modeling environments Repast Simphony and Smoldyn Contains appendices on rules of differentiation and integration, Maxima and PRISM notation, and some additional mathematical concepts Offers supplementary material at an associated website, including source code for many of the example models discussed in the book Students and active researchers in the biosciences will benefit from the discussions of the high-quality, tried-and-tested modeling tools described in the book, as well as the thorough descriptions and examples
