Pressestimmen"What makes for a good mathematics textbook? Challenging, didactic exercises with hints and solutions are a sine qua non: without them you might have a good monograph, but not a good text. Score several points for Hoppensteadt's book, with its meaty exercises...I would recommend the book for a senior or graduate-level course...also valuable as a sourcebook of ideas for applied mathematicians who want to get into this branch of mathematical biology."
