Description

Product Description A Comprehensive Physically Based Approach to Modeling in Bioengineering and Life Sciences provides a systematic methodology to the formulation of problems in biomedical engineering and the life sciences through the adoption of mathematical models based on physical principles, such as the conservation of mass, electric charge, momentum, and energy. It then teaches how to translate the mathematical formulation into a numerical algorithm that is implementable on a computer. The book employs computational models as synthesized tools for the investigation, quantification, verification, and comparison of different conjectures or scenarios of the behavior of a given compartment of the human body under physiological and pathological conditions. Review "When this reviewer opted to receive and review this text, it was hoped that it would present as a complementary text to those of Drs. Carson and Cobelli [Modelling Methodology for Physiology and Medicine (2013) and Introduction to Modeling in Physiology and Medicine, 2nd ed. (2019)].?This was not to be the case. While this text is touted as being for “Biomedical engineers, life sciences researchers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Biology, and Medicine? (Academic Press website), this reviewer suggests that the text be mainly considered as a reference text, to be used primarily by those with an adequate mathematical and MATLAB background." --IEEE Review Presents a comprehensive three-step workflow on how to develop a virtual laboratory for experimental and clinical studies From the Back Cover A Comprehensive Physically Based Approach to Modeling in Bioengineering and Life Sciences provides a systematic methodology to the formulation of problems in biomedical engineering and life sciences through the adoption of mathematical models based on fundamental physics principles, such as the conservation of mass, electric charge, momentum, and energy. Readers will learn to translate the mathematical formulation into a numerical algorithm, implementable on a computer, in order to determine an approximate problem solution. A Comprehensive Modeling Approach in Bioengineering and Life Sciences employs computational models as synthesized tools for the investigation, quantification, verification and comparison of different conjectures or scenarios of the behavior of a given compartment of the human body under physiological and pathological conditions. About the Author Riccardo Sacco, PhD, is an applied mathematician whose research and teaching activities span a wide variety of topics, including computational biology, semiconductor device modeling and simulation, computational fluid mechanics, and finite element analysis. Dr. Sacco has been appointed as a member of the Editorial Board of the “Journal of Coupled Systems and Multiscale Dynamics? and of the “Journal of Modeling for Ophthalmology.? In a joint partnership with Prof. Guidoboni and Prof. Harris, Dr. Sacco has promoted a series of international workshops, congresses, and doctoral courses with the twofold purpose of disseminating the use of mathematical and numerical methods in the study and clinical treatment of ophthalmological diseases and of fostering and favoring the interaction among students, scientists, and researchers in the fields of applied sciences and life sciences. Giovanna Guidoboni, PhD, is an applied mathematician with expertise in mathematical and computational modeling of complex fluid flows arising in engineering and biomedical applications. Dr. Guidoboni has promoted the development of interdisciplinary approaches in physiology and ophthalmology at the international level. She co-founded a new peer-reviewed scientific journal titled “Journal for Modeling in Ophthalmology,? for which she currently serves as co-Chief Editor and Managing Editor, and a new series of interdisciplinary congresses and doctoral cour
