7. “Mathematical Physiology (Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics)” by James Keener and James Sneyd

“Mathematical Physiology (Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics)” Book Review: This textbook elucidates physiology using the tools and perspectives of mathematical modeling and analysis. The book is organized into two parts: the fundamental principles of cell physiology and the physiology of systems. The coverage of the first part includes introduction to basic biochemistry and enzyme reactions, the authors discuss volume control, the membrane potential, ionic flow through channels, excitability, calcium dynamics, and electrical bursting. The second part covers an introduction to electrocardiology, followed by the physiology of the circulatory system, blood muscle, hormones, and kidneys, the digestive system and the visual system and the inner ear. The book can help graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics and related fields.

8. “The Underwater Handbook: A Guide to Physiology and Performance for the Engineer” by Charles Shilling

“The Underwater Handbook: A Guide to Physiology and Performance for the Engineer” Book Review: This textbook provides a detailed exposition on the relationship of the human being to the underwater hyperbaric environment. The information is provided in such a way that those without any background in the psychological or biomedical jargon can understand the idea delivered through this book. The coverage of the book includes various parameters of man’s capability in underwater and hyperbaric environments, the growing field of manned underwater and hyperbaric activities etc. The book can benefit even those who do not have much background in life sciences as well as researchers and students in understanding the human physiology underwater.
