Description

Blood Macro- and Microcirculation presents, in a pedagogical way, the tremendous recent progress achieved in the field of blood flow at both micro and macroscales, and with increasing complexities integrating physical, chemical and biological factors. It constitutes a unique backup of idea evolutions from the early 19th century to present day, along with the tremendous, recent progresses in experiments and simulations. Future challenges are also covered, constituting a plethora of major questions spanning the spectrum of fundamental and applied blood flow science.

Key Features

  • Presents a balanced mixture of theory simulations and experiments
  • Provides a clear evolution of ideas from the 19th century to the present
  • Includes a description of blood flow at different scales
  • Covers the link between physical, chemical and biological factors in blood flow and diseases

Readership

Phds, Postdocs and scientists in blood flow and related research, masters students in physics, applied mathematics, mechanics, micro- and nanotechnologies, bioengineering, medical science. Medical and biological Scientists with a basic background in physics

About the Author

Chaouqi Misbah

The research topics of C. Misbah focus on the problem of theory and simulations of blood flow by taking explicitly red blood cells into account, and more recently on microswimmers (e.g. amoeboid swimming) and cell motility. C. Misbah is also involved in general questions of nonlinear sciences, and has formerley performed many studies in nonequilibrium pattern forming systems, including solidification fronts, such as snow flackes, eutectics, Molecular Beam Epitaxy, and so on. C. Misbah’s activities is closely connected to several experimental studies performed in his Lab.
