MINISYMPOSIUM: Numerical Methods for Blood Flow Simulation

MINISYMPOSIUM organized within the International Conference

ENUMATH 2015, 14-18 September, Ankara, TURKEY


This minisymposium is devoted to the modern methods of mathematical and numerical modeling of blood flows and related processes. Pathologies such as thrombosis, atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, hypertension, strokes or diabetes are mainly related to disturbances of local homeostasis. Their mathematical and numerical study is an important tool for clinical diagnosis and therapeutic planning.

The minisymposium will bring together the specialists in numerical methods and mathematical modeling of blood flows. Various aspects of numerical modeling of local and global blood flows will be addressed.
