Description

Mathematical Neuroscience is a book for mathematical biologists seeking to discover the complexities of brain dynamics in an integrative way. It is the first research monograph devoted exclusively to the theory and methods of nonlinear analysis of infinite systems based on functional analysis techniques arising in modern mathematics.

Neural models that describe the spatio-temporal evolution of coarse-grained variables-such as synaptic or firing rate activity in populations of neurons -and often take the form of integro-differential equations would not normally reflect an integrative approach. This book examines the solvability of infinite systems of reaction diffusion type equations in partially ordered abstract spaces. It considers various methods and techniques of nonlinear analysis, including comparison theorems, monotone iterative techniques, a truncation method, and topological fixed point methods. Infinite systems of such equations play a crucial role in the integrative aspects of neuroscience modeling.

Review Text

"Brzychczy,. Kraków and Poznanski.present methods of nonlinear functional analysis and their application to neuroscience. This is the first book, they say, to compile methods of nonlinear analysis to better understand the dynamics associated with solutions of infinite systems of equations. It would be suitable as a textbook for a one-semester graduate course in mathematical neuroscience for neuroscience students seeking tools and mathematics students looking for applications."-- Reference & Research Book News, December 2013

About Stanislaw Brzychczy

Roman R. Poznanski develops theories in neuroscience with mathematics. He recently co-authored the book, "Mathematical Neuroscience." His passion remains to pinpoint and crack open complex problems holding back our understanding of how the brain works. He is adamant, that a new Einstein in neuroscience will one day produce a complete theory of the brain, not as a hodgepodge of models, but as an integrative theory expressed in terms of modern mathematics. He has over 20 years experience as a theoretician and modeller in the neurosciences. He has edited several contemporary books: Biophysical Neural Networks (2001) and Modeling in the Neurosciences (1999, 2005). He is currently a visiting professor at the Rockefeller University.
