"... an excellent (and as far as I know unique) exposition of the mathematical modelling of neural stochastic processes...Tuckwell is fully conversant with the basic neurobiological underpinnings and does an excellent job of presenting in a short treatment those fundamental motivations." -- Karl Gustafson, University of Colorado, SIAM Review, Vol. 32, No. 2, June 1990.
This monograph is centered on quantitative analysis of nerve-cell behavior. The work is foundational, with many higher order problems still remaining, especially in connection with neural networks. Thoroughly addressed topics include stochastic problems in neurobiology, and the treatment of the theory of related Markov processes.
