Differential Equation Analysis in Biomedical Science and Engineering: Partial Differential Equation Applications with R

With the needed mathematical and computational tools, this book provides a solid foundation in formulating and solving real-world PDE problems in various fields from applied mathematics, engineering, and computer science to biology and medicine, includes supporting documentation and step-by-step guidance, and features R codes that can be easily and conveniently used by readers.

Topical coverage includes: introduction to PDEs and chemotaxis; pattern formation; Belousov-Zhabotinskii reaction system; Hodgkin-Huxley and Fitzhugh-Nagumo models; spatiotemporal effects of anesthesia during surgery; developing retinal vasculature; temperature distributions in cryosurgery; multisection membrane separation system; and origin of PDE reaction-diffusion equations.


Differential Equation Analysis in Biomedical Science and Engineering: Ordinary Differential Equation Applications with R

This book provides readers with the necessary knowledge to reproduce and extend the numerical solutions with reasonable effort and is a valuable resource dealing with a broad class of differential and nonlinear algebraic equations. The investigated problems include ODEs and associated initial conditions. The studied equations describe a wide variety of basic phenomena such as apoptosis, stem cell differentiation, and many others.

Topical coverage includes: introduction to ODE analysis and bioreactor dynamics; diabetes glucose tolerance test; apoptosis; dynamic neuron model; stem cell differentiation; acetylcholine neurocycle; tuberculosis with differential infectivity; corneal curvature; and stiff ODE integration.
