Physical approaches to biological evolution by M. V Volʹkenshteĭn( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a lucid account of physical and mathematical approaches to the fundamental problems of evolutionary biology. The first part treats the interrelations of physics and biology, criticizing in particular the so-called anti-reductionist school. Ideas such as gradualism and punctualism in evolution are described and analysed. The second part is devoted to the molecular foundations of evolution: structure and dynamics of proteins, molecular drive, noncoding DNA. Finally, the problems of evolutionary biology are treated on the basis of synergetics and information theory. In the 1930s Darwin's theory of evolution was united with population genetics. The present book is the first attempt to unify this longstanding framework with our modern knowledge of molecular biology
General biophysics by M. V Volʹkenshteĭn( Book )

9 editions published between 1978 and 1983 in English and Russian and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General Biophysics, Volume I deals with the theoretical physics underlying biological phenomena and presents some pertinent experimental results. It explores the molecular foundations of biophysics, the thermodynamics of nonequilibrium systems and membrane transport, nerve impulses, and mechanochemical processes. Comprised of five chapters, this volume begins with an overview of molecular biophysics and the concept of molecular recognition, followed by a discussion of the interaction between antibodies and antigens, the primary processes that determine odor reception, and the importance of int

Entropy and information by M. V Volʹkenshteĭn( Book )

13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This treasure of popular science by the Russian biophysicist Mikhail V. Volkenstein is at last, more than twenty years after its appearance in Russian, available in English translation. As its title Entropy and Information suggests, the book deals with the thermodynamical concept of entropy and its interpretation in terms of information theory. The author shows how entropy is not to be considered a mere shadow of the central physical concept of energy, but more appropriately as a leading player in all of the major natural processes: physical, chemical, biological, evolutionary, and even cultural. The theory of entropy is thoroughly developed from its beginnings in the foundational work of Sadi Carnot and Clausius in the context of heat engines, including expositions of much of the necessary physics and mathematics, and illustrations from everyday life of the importance of entropy."--Back cover

General Biophysics Volume II by M. V Volʹkenshteĭn( )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

General Biophysics, Volume II studies biological phenomena at the supramolecular and cellular levels of structure. <br>The book considers biological phenomena on the basis of general physical principles. The text presents topics on bioenergetic processes; structure and properties of mitochondria; photo-biological processes; nonlinear dynamic processes; and physical interpretation of the most general problems of biology. <br>Graduate and postgraduate students in the field of physical and life sciences will find this book very useful
