This book, like its parent book "Computational Cell Physiology, with Examples in Python", presents classical and modern topics in cell physiology, with a focus on the function of nerve, muscle, and secretory cells. Not included here are the Python computer programs and Program Notes in the parent book, which are features that may be of interest to some readers only. The laws of diffusion, electricity, and mass action are explained and applied to elucidate the mechanisms by which cells establish a resting membrane potential, achieve osmotic balance, generate action potentials, initiate secretion, and control muscle contraction. The book is experimentally-grounded and emphasizes measurements and models, both classical and modern, that elucidate the topics at a quantitative and mechanistic level. The appendices extend the material of the main text with derivations and advanced calculations. The material is appropriate for self-study or for a one- or two-semester course at the advanced undergraduate or early graduate level.
