520    This book examines key theoretical tools that are 
       currently used to develop mathematical models as an aid in
       understanding the biological response of cells and tissues
       to mechanical stimuli. Problems in growth and remodeling, 
       tissue and organ development, and functional adaptation 
       are all covered. Chapters on tensor analysis and nonlinear
       elasticity provide the necessary background for 
       understanding the engineering theories that are currently 
       used to solve challenges in mechanobiology. This is an 
       ideal book for biomechanical engineers who work on 
       problems in mechanobiology and tissue engineering. 
       Broadens readers' understanding of nonlinear elasticity, 
       contractility, growth and remodeling theory, and 
       mechanical feedback in development Includes numerous 
       quantitative examples to illustrate basic theoretical 
       mechanobiology concepts, such as active force generation, 
       theories for growth and remodeling, and morphogenesis 
       Illustrates theories with numerous applications to 
       specific problems, such as cardiac mechanics, growth (and 
       remodeling) of the heart and arteries, and embryonic 
       development of the heart, brain, and gut
