Conheça o livro e compre online. Dynamic Modeling In The Health Sciences – Hargrove, James L. – ISBN: 0387949968.
The study of complex physiological and metabolic aspects of human health can be powerfully enhanced by the use of user-friendly simulation software. This book and CD integrate the use of STELLA software into the teaching of health, nutrition and physiology. The book can be used on its own as a textbook in nutrition and physiology courses, or can serve as a supplement to introduce the role that simulation modeling can play. Dynamic Modeling in the Health Sciences presents key subjects ranging from the theory of metabolic control to weight regulation to bone metabolism, and gives readers the tools to simulate these dynamic processes with STELLA software. Topics include methods for simulation of gene expression, a multi-stage model of tumor development, theories of aging, circadian rhythms and physiological time, and a model for managing weight loss and preventing obesity. About the Author: James L. Hargrove is Associate Professor in the Department of Foods and Nutrition at the University of Georgia. About the Series: The availability of powerful, intuitive software for developing and running simulation models of real-world phenomena promises a revolution in studying, teaching, and thinking about complex problems that range from the functioning of a cell to that of an ecosystem to that of a national economy. The books in the series Modeling Dynamic Systems promotes the spread of ‘systems thinking’ by integrating state-of-the-art modeling techniques with the theories and concepts of specific disciplines or interdisciplinary topics. The unifying theme of the series is the ease, power, and transparency of model-building.
