Indeed, we believe that the three must be considered as part of a larger whole and that the use of these ideas is perhaps best described as an emergent phenomena! And we must always be careful to make sure our use of mathematics gives us insight. This fourth edition again adds a bit more biology and polishes the mathematical and numerical discussions. In addition,more exercises have been added and additional typographical errors have been found and corrected.< Less
