Fractal Patterns in Nonlinear Dynamics and Applications

1st Edition

Santo Banerjee, M K Hassan, Sayan Mukherjee, A Gowrisankar
December 05, 2019

Most books on fractals focus on deterministic fractals as the impact of incorporating randomness and time is almost absent. Further, most review fractals without explaining what scaling and self-similarity means. This book introduces the idea of scaling, self-similarity, scale-invariance and their...

Time Delay ODE/PDE Models: Applications in Biomedical Science and Engineering

1st Edition

W.E. Schiesser
December 02, 2019

Time delayed (lagged) variables are an inherent feature of biological/physiological systems.  For example, infection from a disease may at first be asymptomatic, and only after a delay is the infection apparent so that treatment can begin.Thus, to adequately describe physiological systems,...

Solved and Unsolved Problems of Structural Chemistry

1st Edition

Milan Randic, Marjana Novic, Dejan Plavsic
November 18, 2019

Solved and Unsolved Problems of Structural Chemistry introduces new methods and approaches for solving problems related to molecular structure. It includes numerous subjects such as aromaticity—one of the central themes of chemistry—and topics from bioinformatics such as graphical and numerical...

Computational Hydrodynamics of Capsules and Biological Cells

1st Edition

Constantine Pozrikidis
October 18, 2019

Spanning biological, mathematical, computational, and engineering sciences, computational biofluiddynamics addresses a diverse family of problems involving fluid flow inside and around living organisms, organs, tissue, biological cells, and other biological materials. Computational Hydrodynamics of...

Moving Boundary PDE Analysis: Biomedical Applications in R

1st Edition

William Schiesser
June 14, 2019

Mathematical models stated as systems of partial differential equations (PDEs) are broadly used in biology, chemistry, physics and medicine (physiology). These models describe the spatial and temporial variations of the problem system dependent variables, such as temperature, chemical and...

Hormones as Tokens of Selection: Qualitative Dynamics of Homeostasis and Regulation in Organismal Biology

1st Edition

Hugo van den Berg
April 23, 2019

Hormones as Tokens of Selection addresses deep questions in biology: How are biological systems controlled? How can one formulate general theories of homeostasis and control and instantiate such theories in mathematical models? How can one use evolutionary arguments to guide our answers to these...
