A modified van der Pol equation with delay in a description of the heart action

Beata Zduniak, Marek Bodnar, Urszula Foryś (2014)

International Journal of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

In this paper, a modified van der Pol equation is considered as a description of the heart action. This model has a number of interesting properties allowing reconstruction of phenomena observed in physiological experiments as well as in Holter electrocardiographic recordings. Our aim is to study periodic solutions of the modified van der Pol equation and take into consideration the influence of feedback and delay which occur in the normal heart action mode as well as in pathological modes.

Asymptotic analysis of blood flow in stented arteries: time dependency and direct simulations***

Vuk Milišić, Amélie Rambaud, Kirill Pichon Gostaf (2010)

ESAIM: Proceedings

This work aims to extend in two distinct directions results recently obtained in [10]. In a first step we focus on the possible extension of our results to the time dependent case. Whereas in the second part some preliminary numerical simulations aim to give orders of magnitudes in terms of numerical costs of direct 3D simulations. We consider, in the first part, the time dependent rough problem for a simplified heat equation in a straight channel that mimics the axial...

Diffusion models of multicomponent mixtures in the lung*

L. Boudin, D. Götz, B. Grec (2010)

ESAIM: Proceedings

In this work, we are interested in two different diffusion models for multicomponent mixtures. We numerically recover experimental results underlining the inadequacy of the usual Fick diffusion model, and the importance of using the Maxwell-Stefan model in various situations. This model nonlinearly couples the mole fractions and the fluxes of each component of the mixture. We then consider a subregion of the lower part of the lung, in which we compare...

Dynamics of Biomembranes: Effect of the Bulk Fluid

A. Bonito, R.H. Nochetto, M.S. Pauletti (2011)

Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena

We derive a biomembrane model consisting of a fluid enclosed by a lipid membrane. The membrane is characterized by its Canham-Helfrich energy (Willmore energy with area constraint) and acts as a boundary force on the Navier-Stokes system modeling an incompressible fluid. We give a concise description of the model and of the associated numerical scheme. We provide numerical simulations with emphasis on the comparisons between different types of flow:...

Hematologic Disorders and Bone Marrow–Peripheral Blood Dynamics

E. Afenya, S. Mundle (2010)

Mathematical Modelling of Natural Phenomena

Hematologic disorders such as the myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are discussed. The lingering controversies related to various diseases are highlighted. A simple biomathematical model of bone marrow - peripheral blood dynamics in the normal state is proposed and used to investigate cell behavior in normal hematopoiesis from a mathematical viewpoint. Analysis of the steady state and properties of the model are used to make postulations about the...
