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. Presents theoretical (modeling), biological (experimental), and computational (simulation) perspectives Features examples, exercises, and MATLAB codes for further reader involvement Covers basic and advanced functional and computational techniques throughout the book
Control Theory in Biomedical Engineering: Applications in Physiology and Medical Robotics highlights the importance of control theory and feedback control in our lives and explains how this theory is central to future medical developments. Control theory is fundamental for understanding feedback paths in physiological systems (endocrine system, immune system, neurological system) and a concept for building artificial organs. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers in the control engineering and biomedical engineering fields, and medical students and practitioners seeking to enhance their understanding of physiological processes, medical robotics (legs, hands, knees), and controlling artificial devices (pacemakers, insulin injection devices). Control theory profoundly impacts the everyday lives of a large part of the human population including the disabled and the elderly who use assistive and rehabilitation robots for improving the quality of their lives and increasing their independence. Gives an overview of state-of-the-art control theory in physiology, emphasizing the importance of this theory in the medical field through concrete examples, e.g., endocrine, immune, and neurological systems Takes a comprehensive look at advances in medical robotics and rehabilitation devices and presents case studies focusing on their feedback control Presents the significance of control theory in the pervasiveness of medical robots in surgery, exploration, diagnosis, therapy, and rehabilitation
Physics-Based Deformable Models presents a systematic physics-based framework for modeling rigid, articulated, and deformable objects, their interactions with the physical world, and the estimate of their shape and motion from visual data. This book presents a large variety of methods and associated experiments in computer vision, graphics and medical imaging that help the reader better to understand the presented material. In addition, special emphasis has been given to the development of techniques with interactive or close to real-time performance. Physics-Based Deformable Models is suitable as a secondary text for graduate level courses in Computer Graphics, Computational Physics, Computer Vision, Medical Imaging, and Biomedical Engineering. In addition, this book is appropriate as a reference for researchers and practitioners in the above-mentioned fields.
The book has been written by an international group of very activeresearchers and scholars who have a passion for the study of Chinesemathematics education. It aims to provide readers with a comprehensiveand updated picture of the teaching and learning of mathematicsinvolving Chinese students from various perspectives, including theways in which Chinese students learn mathematics in classrooms, schools and homes, the influence of the cultural and socialenvironment on Chinese students'' mathematics learning, and thestrengths and weaknesses of the ways in which Chinese learnmathematics
This is a book on interdisciplinary topics of the Mathematical and Biological Sciences. The treatment is both pedagogical and advanced in order to motivate research students as well as to fulfill the requirements of professional practitioners. There are comprehensive reviews written by senior experts on the important problems of growth and agglomeration in biology, on the algebraic modelling of the genetic code and on multi-step biochemical pathways. There are new results on the state of the art research in the pattern recognition of probability distribution of amino acids, on somitogenesis through reaction-diffusion models, on the mathematical modelling of infectious diseases, on the biophysical modelling of physiological disorders, on the sensitive analysis of parameters of malaria models, on the stability and hopf bifurcation of ecological and epidemiological models, on the viral infection of bee colonies and on the structure and motion of proteins. All these contributions are also strongly recommended to professionals from other scientific areas aiming to work on these interdisciplinary fields.

This new work is an introduction to the numerical solution of the initial value problem for a system of ordinary differential equations. The first three chapters are general in nature, and chapters 4 through 8 derive the basic numerical methods, prove their convergence, study their stability and consider how to implement them effectively. The book focuses on the most important methods in practice and develops them fully, uses examples throughout, and emphasizes practical problem-solving methods.
