Description

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.show more

Review quote

"The two books edited by Constantine Pozrikidis [see also Computational Hydrodynamics of Capsules and Biological Cells] deal primarily with mathematical evaluations and in silico investigations (modeling and simulations) of particles in motion. ... they complement each other in that information provided in one book is either absent, described in more detail, or expanded upon in the other. ... Both books contain a collection of chapters contributed by investigators from around the world who provide their expert experiences in fields such as biology and physiology, mathematics, mechanical and chemical engineering, as well as computer and information science. ... [this book] provides an excellent review of many aspects of flow-induced capsule deformation. ... well written and structured, and the sequence of topics presented in the chapters is appropriate. ... Both books are fascinating ... a welcome addition to the growing number of publications in the fast-advancing field of biological dynamics." -Christian T.K.-H.
