This unprecedented book offers all the details of the mathematical mechanics underlying state-of-the-art modeling of skeletal muscle contraction. The aim is to provide an integrated vision of mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology for this one understanding. The method is to take advantage of modern mathematical techlogy - Eilenberg-Mac Lane category theory, Robinson infinitesimal calculus and Kolmogorov probability theory - to examine a succession of distinguishable universes of particles, and continuous, thermodynamic, chemical, and molecular bodies, all with a focus on proofs by algebraic calculation without set theory. Also provided are metaphors and analogies, and careful distinction between representational pictures, mental model drawings, and mathematical diagrams. High school mathematics teachers, undergraduate and graduate college students, and researchers in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology may use this integrated publication to broaden their perspective on science, and to experience the precision that mathematical mechanics brings to understanding the muscular mechanism of nearly all animal behavior.
