A reissue of this 3-volume set of classic books, newly edited and typeset as part of the Biological Physics Series, in response to numerous requests. Intended for undergraduate courses in biophysics, biological physics, physiology, medical physics, and biomedical engineering, they offer an introduction to mechanics, statistical physics, and electricity and magnetism with examples and problems from the medical and biological sciences. They can thus be used as supplements to standard introductory physics courses, and as texts for medical schools, medical physics courses, and biology departments, and solutions manuals will be available. The authors are recognised experts in the field, and will also publish an upper-level/graduate text in biological physics at a later date.
