Mathematics for Biological Scientists

Mathematics for Biological Scientists is a new undergraduate textbook which covers the mathematics necessary for biology students to understand, interpret and discuss biological questions. The book's twelve chapters are organized into four themes. The first theme covers the basic concepts of mathematics in biology, discussing the mathematics used in biological quantities, processes and structures. The second theme, calculus, extends the language of mathematics to describe change. The third theme is probability and statistics, where the uncertainty and variation encountered in real biological data is described. The fourth theme is explored briefly in the final chapter of the book, which is to show how the 'tools' developed in the first few chapters are used within biology to develop models of biological processes. Mathematics for Biological Scientists fully integrates mathematics and biology with the use of colour illustrations and photographs to provide an engaging and informative approach to the subject of mathematics and statistics within biological science.

The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme is the first book to be written for doctors on the new UK Foundation Programme. It has been written by junior doctors with specific reference to the different style of training offered by the new changes in postgraduate education. It is the most useful book you can carry during the critical first two years after medical school. As you start your job it will guide you through your on-call emergencies, day-to-day ward life and specialty attachments whilst helping you adapt to your career, get the most out of your job andchoose a specialty. It contains the simple factual guidance you'd expect from an Oxford Handbook. The clinical sections are arranged by symptom and have a clear, step-by-step format for the emergency management of your patients. This book gives you the best questions to ask for the history, tells you what to look forin examination, and guides you to the correct diagnosis and treatment. This presentation-based approach ensures you can offer the best treatment for your patients, whose diagnoses often aren't clear at first. A practical, ward-based approach is taken for common on-call problems - including slidingscales, warfarin dosing, and falls. The specialty sections range from A and E to urology, highlighting the important differences in approach, with a succinct guide to the management of common specialist conditions. Also covered are practical procedures ranging from cannulation to chest drains, outlining indications, equipment and the actual procedure. Wherever possible, hints for success have been included. Interpretation of investigation results includes the ECG, CXR and blood tests, providing a quickreference scheme invaluable for years to come. The book ends with the common drug doses that all doctors should know, but sometimes need to double check. The Oxford Handbook for the Foundation Programme also contains a non-clinical section tackling issues from interview technique to tax assessment. It includes all relevant addresses and website references to help you find the information you need.
