This book reviews how mathematical and computational approaches can be useful to help us understand how killer T-cell responses work to fight viral infections. It also demonstrates, in a writing style that exemplifies the point, that such mathematical and computational approaches are most valuable when coupled with experimental work through interdisciplinary collaborations. Designed to be useful to immunoligists and viroligists without extensive computational background, the book covers a broad variety of topics, including both basic immunological questions and the application of these insights to the understanding and treatment of pathogenic human diseases.

"This book concentrates on a particular branch of the immune system: killer T cells ... . the book provides an introduction to the field of mathematical immunology and an overview together a broad variety of immunological topics. ... intended for an interdisciplinary audience, and it is written in a way such that experimental immunologists and virologists should be able to understand the arguments and to see the biological implications of the theory. An interesting text which might be a good complement to this book ... ." (Eva Sanchez, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1125 (2), 2008)
