Advances in Biological and Medical Physics provides an overview of the state of knowledge in biological and medical physics. The book contains seven chapters and begins with a discussion of the kinetics of cellular proliferation. This is followed by separate chapters on energy distribution in the absorption of radiation; polymorphic transitions of lipids and their possible role in the structure and function of membranes; and chemical interrelationships between the major classes of serum lipoproteins and statistical interrelationships between the serum concentrations of major classes of lipoproteins. Subsequent chapters deal with applications of thermodynamics and the theory of mechanics to the study of mechanisms responsible for material transfer through the membranes of living cells; the role of the swimbladder rete of fish in inert gas and oxygen secretion; and zone centrifugation techniques.
