This is the first book-length treatment of mathematical models of muscle functions. Although physiologists, biophysicists, and bioengineers often mention these models, particularly the important Huxley models, Thomas A. McMahon is the first completely to explain them.
"This book is highly recommended to all those interested in muscle and animal movement. It is likely to be equally useful to students and to established research workers in biophysics, bioengineering, biology, and medicine."--Science
