New book in the SpringerBriefs series: Computational Physiology - Simula Summer School 2021
The Simula SpringerBriefs on Computing aims to provide introductions to select areas of research in computing. Each volume aims to provide an introduction to, and overview over, research fields that can otherwise be inaccessible. This is the 11th volume in this series.
Computational Physiology: Simula Summer School 2021 − Student Reports edited by Kimberly J. McCabe is now available for download. Interested readers will find herein a number of modern approaches to modelling excitable tissue, which should provide a framework for tools available to model subcellular and tissue-level physiology across scales and scientific questions. This volume compiles eight of the student reports from the 2021 Simula Summer School in Computational Physiology, each as a separate chapter. The fields represented include cardiac geometry definition, electrophysiology and pharmacology, fluid mechanics in blood vessels, cardiac calcium handling and mechanics, and machine learning in cardiac electrophysiology.
About the editor
Kimberly J. McCabe is a Research Scientist at Simula Research Laboratory and the program director for SUURPh (the Simula UiO UCSD Research and PhD training program), the program that organises the Simula Summer School. Her current research is focused on subcellular modelling of cardiac mechanics and calcium handling, which she conducts primarily in collaboration with partners at the University of California, San Diego.
The Simula SpringerBriefs on Computing aims to provide introductions to select research areas in computing. The series presents both a state-of-the-art disciplinary overview and raises essential critical questions in the field. Published by SpringerOpen, all Simula SpringerBriefs on Computing is open access, allowing for faster sharing and wider dissemination of knowledge.
By publishing the Simula SpringerBriefs on Computing, Simula Research Laboratory acts on its mandate of emphasising research education. Books in this series are published only by invitation from an editorial board member. This is the 11th volume. For previous volumes, click here.
