About this book

Provides an exciting account of living organisms as dynamic systems, based on the concept that the spatio-temporal coherence of events within a living system result from the instrinsic dynamics of the processes taking place within that system.


Contents

Part 1 Dynamic organization: general concepts; dynamic organization in cellular systems; rhythms as a fundamental property of biological systems; symetry in dynamic biological organization; dynamic organization in biologically-oriented artificial systems. Part 2 Living cells under the perspective of dynamic organization: supramolecular structure and enzyme catlaysis - the ground plan of living cells; spatio-temporal regulation of glycolysis and oxidative phosphorylation in vivo; about the dynamic behaviour of micro-organisms; dynamics of cell growth and division; spatio-temporal co-ordination of cellular energetics and metabolism during development; cell growth and differentiation from the perspective of dynamics and thermodynamics of cellular and subcellular processes; dynamic coupling and spatio-temporal coherence in cellular systems; conclusions and outlook - models, facts and biological complexity.
