Academic Press Series in Biomedical Engineering
Joseph Bronzino, Series Editor
The focus of this series will be twofold. First, the series will produce a set of core text/references for biomedical engineering undergraduate and graduate courses. Withbiomedical engineers coming from a variety of engineering and biomedical backgrounds,it will be necessary to create new cross-disciplinary teaching and self-study books. Secondly,the series will also develop handbooks for each of the major subject areas of biomedicalengineering.Joseph Bronzino, the series editor, is one of the most renowned biomedical engineers in theworld.
