Chapman & Hall/CRC Mathematical Biology & Medicine #2: Modeling and Simulation of Capsules and Biological Cellsby Costas Pozrikidis
Synopses & Reviews
In the past three decades, considerable progress has been made in the mathematical analysis, modeling, and simulation of the fluid dynamics of liquid capsules and biological cells. In this book, leaders in the field explore topics related to the modeling and numerical simulation of capsule fluid dynamics and cell biomechanics. Providing an outstanding overview of the subject, the authors include results from their own ongoing research. The book covers the fundamentals of cell and membrane mechanics, modeling hydrodynamics under various flow conditions, and drop and bubble dynamics associated with temperature variations and surfactant transport. The clear exposition and stand-alone format provided by Modeling and Simulation of Capsules and Biological Cells puts state-of-the-art information in a single source that will undoubtedly motivate further work in this developing field.
Book News Annotation:
Drawing upon their own ongoing research in the field, international scientists discuss the mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of liquid capsules and biological cells. Topics include, for example, the unified description of internal and external fluid motion, the coupling of continuum mechanics with molecular processes, and the numerical simulation of large systems accounting for strong hydrodynamic interactions. Pozrikidis teaches mechanical and aerospace engineering at UC-San Diego. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
In the past three decades, considerable progress has been made in the mathematical analysis, modelling, and simulation of the fluid dynamics of liquid capsules and biological cells, and interest in this area is now at an all-time high. This book features a collection of chapters contributed by acknowledged leaders in the field who explore topics related to the modeling and numerical simulation of capsule fluid dynamics and cell biomechanics. While providing an outstanding overview of the state of the art in selected areas of the subject, the authors also present the results of their own original research. A companion Web site holds useful links and additional information related to the topics discussed.
