The first printing of the Second edition. The first edition was published in 1980. "It is the purpose of this book to synthesize and explain the current theories of electron transfer between biological moledcules in language which is easily understandable by mathematically minded biologists and by physicists and chemists interested in biological systems. Most cases involve the quantum-mechanical phenomenon in which a particle (an electron or an entire atom) penetrates a potential-energy barrier. This behavior has become known as 'tunnelling'..."
