Couverture de l’ouvrage A Comprehensive Physically Based Approach to Modeling in Bioengineering and Life Sciences

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 then learn to translate the mathematical formulation into a numerical algorithm, implementable on a computer, 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.
