Johannes Kepler Symposium für Mathematik

Im Rahmen des Johannes-Kepler-Symposiums für Mathematik wird Alfio Quarteroni am Tue, Nov. 5, 2002 um 15:30 Uhr im HS 9 einen öffentlichen Vortrag (mit anschließender Diskussion) zum Thema "Mathematical models of the cardiovascular system" halten, zu dem die Veranstalter des Symposiums,

O.Univ.-Prof. Dr. Ulrich Langer,
Univ.-Prof. Dr. Gerhard Larcher
A.Univ.-Prof. Dr. Jürgen Maaß, und
die ÖMG (Österreichische Mathematische Gesellschaft)

hiermit herzlich einladen.

Series A - General Colloquium:

The intention is to present general information not only to experts, but also to students and guests from outside the mathematical institutes.

Mathematical models of the cardiovascular system

The interest in the use of mathematical modeling and numerical simulation in the study of the cardiovascular system (and its inherent pathologies) has greatly increased in the past few years. Blood flow interacts mechanically and chemically with vessel walls producing a complex fluid-structure interaction problem.

In this talk I will introduce the main mathematical models which are nowadays used for the description of these mechanisms, and I will show different applications to cases of clinical interest.
