This introductory chapter begins with a brief discussion of the primary goal of this book, which is to provide an account of networks of physicochemical interactions and the cellular processes that they regulate: cell growth and division, death, differentiation, and aging. The general aim is to illustrate how mathematical models of these processes can be developed and analyzed. An overview of the chapters is presented. This is followed by a discussion on mathematical modelling of biological phenomena and a brief note on the organization and use of the book.
