Author: Howard C Berg
Publisher: Princeton, N.J. : Princeton University Press, 1993.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : Expanded edView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This book is a lucid, straightforward introduction to the concepts and techniques of statistical physics that students of biology, biochemistry, and biophysics must know. It provides a sound basis for understanding random motions of molecules, subcellular particles, or cells, or of processes that depend on such motion or are markedly affected by it. Readers do not need to understand thermodynamics in order to  Read more...
