Sneddon Lecture: The Beat of Math

Alfio Quarteroni (Politecnico di Milano and EPFL, Lausanne)

Tuesday 4th May, 2021 16:00-17:00 Online


Mathematical models based on first principles allow the description of the blood motion in the human circulatory system, as well as the interaction between electrical, mechanical and fluid-dynamical processes occurring in the heart. This is a classical environment where multi-physics processes have to be addressed.

Appropriate numerical strategies can be devised to allow for the analysis of both heart function and dysfunction, and the simulation, control and optimization of therapy and surgery.
