Computational Hydrodynamics of Capsules and Biological Cells

1st Edition

Constantine Pozrikidis
September 27, 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...

Z. C. Yang
March 29, 2019

Finite element analysis has been widely applied to study biomedical problems. This book aims to simulate some common medical problems using finite element advanced technologies, which establish a base for medical researchers to conduct further investigations. This book consists of four main parts:...

Revival: Fractals in Soil Science (1998): Advances in Soil Science

1st Edition

Philippe Baveye, Jean-Yves Parlange, B.A. Stewart
January 29, 2019

The application of fractals and fractal geometry in soil science has become increasingly important over the last few years. This self-contained and timely book was designed to provide detailed and comprehensive information on the current status of the application of fractal geometry in soil science...

Mathematical Population Dynamics and Epidemiology in Temporal and Spatio-Temporal Domains

1st Edition

Harkaran Singh, Joydip Dhar
December 07, 2018

Mankind now faces even more challenging environment- and health-related problems than ever before. Readily available transportation systems facilitate the swift spread of diseases as large populations migrate from one part of the world to another. Studies on the spread of the communicable diseases...

Systems Immunology: An Introduction to Modeling Methods for Scientists

1st Edition

Jayajit Das, Ciriyam Jayaprakash
September 06, 2018

"Taken together, the body of information contained in this book provides readers with a bird’s-eye view of different aspects of exciting work at the convergence of disciplines that will ultimately lead to a future where we understand how immunity is regulated, and how we can harness this knowledge...

1st Edition

Ivan Cimrak, Iveta Jancigova
August 28, 2018

Simulating blood cells for biomedical applications is a challenging goal. Whether you want to investigate blood flow behavior on the cell scale, or use a blood cell model for fast computational prototyping in microfluidics, Computational Blood Cell Mechanics will help you get started, and show you...

Fractals and Multifractals in Ecology and Aquatic Science

1st Edition

Laurent Seuront
September 12, 2017

Ecologists sometimes have a less-than-rigorous background in quantitative methods, yet research within this broad field is becoming increasingly mathematical. Written in a step-by-step fashion, Fractals and Multifractals in Ecology and Aquatic Science provides scientists with a basic understanding...

Mathematical Models of Plant-Herbivore Interactions

1st Edition

Zhilan Feng, Donald DeAngelis
August 16, 2017

Mathematical Models of Plant-Herbivore Interactions addresses mathematical models in the study of practical questions in ecology, particularly factors that affect herbivory, including plant defense, herbivore natural enemies, and adaptive herbivory, as well as the effects of these on plant...

An Introduction to Physical Oncology: How Mechanistic Mathematical Modeling Can Improve Cancer Therapy Outcomes

1st Edition

Vittorio Cristini, Eugene Koay, Zhihui Wang
July 06, 2017

Physical oncology has the potential to revolutionize cancer research and treatment. The fundamental rationale behind this approach is that physical processes, such as transport mechanisms for drug molecules within tissue and forces exchanged by cancer cells with tissue, may play an equally...
