Biological systems, however, encompass a vast, diverse array of topics and problems.
Modeling Biological Systems: Principles and Applications
This book discusses only a select number of these that I have found to be useful and interesting to biologists just beginning their appreciation of computer simulation. The examples chosen span classical mathematical models of well-studied systems to state-of-the-art topics such as cellular automata and artificial life. I have stressed the relationship between the models and the biology over mathematical analysis in order to give the reader a sense that mathematical models really are useful to biologists. In this light, I have sought examples that address fundamental and, I think, interesting biological questions.
Almost all of the models are directly COIIl pared to quantitative data to provide at least a partial demonstration that some biological models can accurately predict.

This book is a complete dissapointment. It does not offer any real scientific physical models which then can be transformed in an algorithm and being simulated but is is merely a conglomerate of several statistical procedures commonly used in Biology for interpreting data maybe copied by the author and collected from other books, as nothing that he presents is new! This book does not offer any scientific, fundamental insight in how to really model and simulate properly complex biological systems, it is also written in a very unscientific, popular style.
The mathematical level corresponds to High-School and as the author says in the preface: I think that nonsense speaks for itself. This author should rather write novels instead of cobbling something together that gets the label "scientific" on the cover. The book is not trash, the author does have collected some of the simplest "models" there are to describe collections of data in statistical terms, but this has NOTHING to do with proper scientific numerical and mathematical modeling and even less with scientific Computing in the field of biological complex systems, e.
All in all I judge this book as a complete waste of money and as completely superfluous. This book is great, it provides a extense presentation of concepts of modelling and various examples and applications. Very fast to get it. The package is strong enough to protect the book.
