A
unifying theme in all biological fluid dynamics is the interaction
of moving, elastic boundaries with surrounding fluid. This
workshop will bring together biologists, zoologists, mathematicians
and numerical analysts to focus on modeling and simulations
of these complex systems. Topics covered include motility
of microorganisms, mucociliary interaction, pulmonary airway
reopening, red blood cell motion and leech swimming. Numerical
methods wellsuited to these systems, such as immersed boundary
methods, boundary element methods and impulse methods will
be explored.
All talks are in Lecture Hall EE/CS 3180 unless otherwise noted.
