Google full text of this book:

This book is a lucid, straightforward introduction to the concepts and techniques of statistical physics that students of biology, biochemistry, and biophysics must know. It provides a sound basis for understanding random motions of molecules, subcellular particles, or cells, or of processes that depend on such motion or are markedly affected by it. Readers do not need to understand thermodynamics in order to acquire a knowledge of the physics involved in diffusion, sedimentation, electrophoresis, chromatography, and cell motility--subjects that become lively and immediate when the author discusses them in terms of random walks of individual particles.


"A scholarly and pedagogically masterly introduction to diffusion, its physics and its statistics."--Charles DeLisi, Nature

"I very strongly recommend this excellent book to students as a supplementary textbook in courses on biochemistry, physiology, and biophysics. Moreover, research scientists and scholars should enjoy reading it."--Akira Okubo, The Quarterly Review of Biology
