About this book

Bioengineering is the application of the physical sciences and mathematics to the study of living structures and organisms. This textbook is for final year undergraduates.


"Recommended for [the] early mechanics-and-circuits and systems chapters, which may be sufficiently extensive to serve alone in rather specialized courses. "--Physics Today


"An informative book."--Medical Physics
