# Johannes Kepler Symposium on Mathematics

As part of the Johannes Kepler symposium on mathematics
**Alfio
Quarteroni**
will give a public talk (followed by a discussion) on **Tue, Nov. 5, 2002**
at **14:30 o'clock** at **HS 9**
on the topic of
"Mathematical models of the cardiovascular system"
. The organziers of the symposium,

Univ.-Prof. Dr. Gerhard Larcher

A.Univ.-Prof. Dr. Jürgen Maaß, and

die ÖMG (Österreichische Mathematische Gesellschaft),

hereby cordially invite you.

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.
