Textbooks


Antonio Siber and I published a book entitled Cellular Patters which discusses the structure and shape of tissues from the physicist's perspective. The book may serve as a standalone textbook for a MS- or PhD-level course in mechanics of tissues or as a complementary textbook for a general course in biophysics. Here are the chapter titles:

  • Introduction
  • Cells as physical objects
  • In-plane structure of single-layer-tissues
  • shape of epithelia
  • Morphogenesis
  • Bulk tissues
  • Afterthoughts

This book also includes 64 problems.


Gregor Skacej and I have written a book of solved problems in thermodynamics. Topics covered span the standard advanced undergraduate course for physics students:

  • equation of state
  • 1st law of thermodynamics
  • 2nd law of thermodynamics
  • thermodynamic potentials
  • phase transitions
  • mixtures and solutions
  • transport phenomena

The book includes exactly 100 problems. Take a peek:


We also wrote a book of solved problems in statistical physics. Most of the problems are on advanced undergraduate level but some are a little bit more complex. Contents:

  • classical canonical distribution
  • equation of state
  • entropy
  • quantum canonical distribution
  • grand canonical distribution
  • kinetic theory of gases

We will be very happy to hear what you think about the books.
