Written for undergraduate and graduate students, this book provides comprehensive coverage of the mathematical mechanics underlying modern modeling of skeletal muscle contraction. The aim is to provide an integrated vision of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology to enhance understanding of how these areas interact. Topics include calculus as an algebra of infinitesimals, algebra of vectors, particle universe, and algebraic thermodynamics.
In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is included in an appendix.
