SOME ten years ago, Dr. Nicolas Rashevsky, then a young mathematical physicist, turned his mind to biological problems; and ever since he has been writing papers on the borderland between physics. Biophysics is an interdisciplinary science that applies approaches and methods traditionally used in physics to study biological phenomena. Biophysics covers all scales of biological organization, from molecular to organismic and sical research shares significant overlap with biochemistry, molecular biology, physical chemistry, physiology, nanotechnology, bioengineering.

In he published one of the first books on mathematical biology and mathematical biophysics entitled: "Mathematical Biophysics: Physico-Mathematical Foundations of Biology." This fundamental book was eventually published in three revised editions, the Alma mater: Kiev University, University of Chicago. The recent approximate method developed by N. Rashevsky in his bookMathematical Biophysics is shown to lead to results equivalent to those obtained in the preceding paper on cell respiration. An estimate is made of the value of the total diffusion resistance to lactic acid for unfertilizedArbacia eggs. Several more general reactions are treated to illustrate the effect of Cited by:

Biophysics (BMB, ). Mathematical biophysics In the ’s, Rashevsky conceived of the idea of a systematic development of a mathematical biology that would cover the whole ﬁeld of biology. Such a mathematical biology would stand in the same rela-tion to experimental biology as mathematical physics stands to experimental physics.
