Calculating the Secrets of Life
by Eric S. Lander, Michael S. Waterman
Publisher: National Academies Press 1995
Number of pages: 309
In this first-ever survey of the partnership between mathematics and biology, leading experts look at how mathematical research and methods have made possible important discoveries in biology. Explores how differential geometry, topology, and differential mechanics have allowed researchers to "wind" and "unwind" DNA's double helix to understand the phenomenon of supercoiling.
