People familiar with integration may be interested in the article

`A mathematical model for the determination of total area under glucose tolerance and other metabolic curves‘ by Mary Tai in Diabetes Care February 1994 17:152-154.

For those familiar with the Australian journals rankings exercise it seems that this journal is an A*.

Thanks to Melanie Roberts for bringing it to my attention.

Wow. Just… wow. The paper appears to have garnered at least 137 citations, although at least some of Tai’s peers immediately recognised the method as the trapezoidal rule – letters in response to the article (and replies in turn by Tai) can currently be found here: http://jt512.dyndns.org/documents/tai_comments_50.pdf

I wonder if the reverse is true… that is, when mathematicians write about applications in biology, does it look like this to biologists?
