In contrast to such texts, Physical Models of Living Systems attempts to connect the information found in the standard biophysical textbooks with current academic research topics.

A First Course in Systems Biology

In fact, the book feels personal in its selection of topics and the training journey on which it takes its readership. In our opinion, the combination of this uniqueness with technical accuracy makes the book a noteworthy and valuable addition to resources for advanced biophysics education. Note that the companion website is www. A teacher companion website is also offered, with additional information exclusively for instructors.

However, avoiding the traditional biochemistry treatment, Nelson touches upon them almost as an aside, alongside other examples and embedded in the context of the aspects of cellular processes he chooses to discuss: randomness, feedback control, switches, and oscillators.

With regard to biological background, for example, independent additional reading and interest will generally be required to completely understand all the very diverse examples Nelson uses, especially for readers who did not have advanced biology courses in high school or college. Ambitious and interdisciplinary technical texts benefit particularly from experienced authors and publishers, and this book is a good example of this.

Nelson uses structural style elements consistently, which is helpful without being overly rigid. Illustrations are depicted in thumbnail format in the page margin wherever they are referenced, even if the full-sized version is found elsewhere.


Because this book is written as a textbook not a research text , only limited space is available in each example for critical discussion of alternative models.

However, Nelson devotes ample space to explaining the vital importance of clearly defining the assumptions underpinning each model, the perils of overfitting in quantitative modeling and simulation, and the option to quickly use dimensions units to verify the consistency of calculations, an approach often applied in practice, to flag avoidable errors without much extra effort. The list covers a wide range of sciences, from biology through mathematics and chemistry to computer science.

Throughout the book, the author exemplifies and discusses how quantitative skills mathematics and computation can be applied effectively to constructing quantitative models for complex biological problems.

Prospective readers should be aware that, in doing so, the author uses various quantitative skills that likely exceed those taught in the curricula of typical undergraduate biology and chemistry programs in the U.

A more cursory use of the book may, of course, be possible with less preliminary knowledge—and, conversely, exceptionally bright students will often be able to synthesize background knowledge they are missing just from context. As a prerequisite in biology, the student needs at least one semester of a cell and molecular biology course in addition to an introductory college biology course.

As a physical chemistry prerequisite, we expect that it will be sufficient to have taken at least one semester of a biophysical or physical chemistry course in which basic thermodynamics and chemical kinetics are covered in the context of biochemistry.

Similarly, as long as one has a solid understanding of calculus-based introductory college physics together with the aforementioned prerequisites, we believe devoted students will not strictly require additional advanced senior-level physics courses. Specifically, consistent with most biological phenomena being dynamic and stochastic, two major mathematical topics are encountered throughout the entire book: differential equations and probability theory.

The author suggests in the preface the classic Basic Training in Mathematics: A Fitness Program for Science Students Shankar, , which some students will have encountered, as a complementary book, and which in our view will provide sufficient mathematical background, especially for differential equations.

Regarding probability theory, we think that Chance in Biology: Using Probability to Explore Nature Denny and Gaines, , also listed in the suggested reading material by the author, definitely provides a sufficient background on probability for understanding the textbook.The comparison of the three books uncovers the two main strands of systems: Current bid amount.
