Biologische Uhren: Zeitstrukturen des Lebendigen (Biological Clocks: Time Structures of the Living)

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Das Phänomen der Phaseneinstellung und die zugrundeliegenden Mechanismen sind zentrale Thema von Arthur Winfrees anspruchsvollem Buch über die Zeitstrukturen des Lebendigen. Wie arbeiten biologische Uhren? Mit welchen Experimenten kann man ihre Dynamik ergründen? Welchen Prinzipien folgt die Neueinstellung der Phasen bei schwachen und bei starken Stimuli? Und warum können bestimme Reize die Rhythmik in unvorhersehbarer Weise verändern oder gar aufheben? Noch gibt es auf solche Fragen erst vorläufige Antworten.
(The phenomenon of phase adjustment and the underlying mechanisms are the central theme of Arthur Winfrees' challenging book on the temporal structures of the living. How do biological clocks work? With which experiments can you elucidate your dynamics? What are the principles of re-setting the phases for weak and strong stimuli? And why can certain stimuli alter or even eliminate the rhythm in an unpredictable way? There are still preliminary answers to such questions.)

Written in German.
Dust jacket very good.
Pages very good, very little edge wear.
