Originally published in 1977, this book covers in a comprehensive manner the detailed kinetic analysis of a number of different enzyme models. Each kinetic equation is developed in a stepwise fashion so that the reader can more easily follow the mathematical procedure. However, more advanced subjects are also introduced and the book contains sections on coupled enzyme systems, oscillatory kinetics, computer simulation of biochemical systems and statistical analysis of enzyme kinetic data. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in enzyme kinetics and the development of biochemistry.
