Title:Mathematical Modelling of the Cell Cycle Stress Response [electronic resource]
Author(s): Elahe Radmaneshfar
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The cell cycle is a sequence of biochemical events that are controlled by complex but robust molecular machinery. This enables cells to achieve accurate self-reproduction under a broad range of conditions. Environmental changesare transmitted by mole cular signaling networks, which coordinate their actions with the cell cycle. Thiswork presents the first description oftwo complementary computational modelsdescribing the influence of osmotic stress onthe entire cell cycle of S. cerevisiae. Our models condense a vast amount of experimental evidence on the interaction of the cell cycle network components with the osmotic stress pathway. Importantly, it is only by considering theentire cell cycle that we are able to make a series of novel predictions whi ch emerge from the coupling between the molecular components of different cell cycle phases. The model-based predictions are supported by experiments in S.cerevisiae and, moreover, have recently been observed in other eukaryotes. Furthermore our models r eveal the mechanisms that emerge as a result of the interaction between the cell cycle and stress response networks
Contents:A biological overview of the cell cycle and its response to osmotic stress and the
factor
ODE model of the cell cycle response to osmotic stress
Boolean model of the cell cycle response to stress

Title:Waves in Neural Media [electronic resource] : From Single Neurons to Neural Fields
Author(s): Paul C Bressloff
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Waves in Neural Media: From Single Cells to Neural Fields surveys mathematical models of traveling waves in the brain, ranging from intracellular waves in single neurons to waves of activity in large-scale brain networks. The workprovides a pedagogic al account of analytical methods for finding traveling wave solutions of the variety of nonlinear differential equations that arise in such models. These include regular and singular perturbation methods, weaklynonlinear analysis, Evans functions and wave stability, homogenization theory and averaging, and stochastic processes. Also covered in the text are exact methods of solution where applicable. Historically speaking, the propagation ofaction potentials has inspired new mathematics, particularly with regard tothe PDE theory of waves in excitable media. More recently, continuum neural field models of large-scale brain networks have generated a new set of interestingmathematical questions with regard tothe solution of nonlocal integro-differential equat ions. Advanced graduates, postdoctoral researchers and faculty working in mathematical biology, theoretical neuroscience, or applied nonlineardynamics will find this book to be a valuable resource. The main prerequisites are an introductory graduate cours e on ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations, making this an accessible and unique contributionto the field of mathematical biology.

Title:Evolution Equations Arising in the Modelling of Life Sciences [electronic resource]
Author(s): Messoud Efendiev
Date:2013
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book deals with the modeling, analysis and simulation of problems arising in the life sciences, and especially in biological processes. The models and findings presented result from intensive discussions with microbiologists,doctors and medical staff, physicists, chemists and industrial engineers and are based on experimental data. They lead to a new class of degenerate density-dependent nonlinear reaction-diffusion convective equations that simultaneouslycomprise two kinds of degeneracy: porous -medium and fast-diffusion type degeneracy. To date, this class is still not clearly understood in the mathematical literature and thus especially interesting. The author both derivesrealistic life science models and their above-mentioned governing equat ions of the degenerate types and systematically studies these classes of equations. In each concrete case well-posedness, the dependence of solutions on boundaryconditions reflecting some properties of the environment, and the large-time behavior of solut ions are investigated and in some instances also studied numerically

Title:Stability of Vector Differential Delay Equations [electronic resource]

Date:2013
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Differential equations with delay naturallyarise in various applications, such as control systems, viscoelasticity, mechanics, nuclear reactors, distributed networks, heat flows, neural networks, combustion, interaction ofspecies, microbiology, learn ing models, epidemiology, physiology, and many others. This book systematically investigates the stability of linear as well as nonlinear vector differential equations with delay and equations with causalmappings. It presents explicit conditions for expon ential, absolute and input-to-state stabilities. These stability conditions are mainly formulated in terms of the determinants and eigenvalues of auxiliary matrices dependent on aparameter the suggested approachallows us to apply the well-known results of the theory of matrices. In addition, solution estimates for the considered equations are established which provide the bounds for regions of attraction ofsteady states. The main methodology presented in the book is based on a combined usage of the rece nt norm estimates for matrix-valued functionsand the following methods and results: the generalized Bohl-Perron principle and theintegral version of the generalized Bohl-Perron principle the freezing method the positivity of fundamental solutions. A signi ficant part of the book is devoted to the Aizerman-Myshkis problem and generalized Hill theory ofperiodic systems. The book is intended not only for specialists in the theory of functional differential equations and control theory, but also for anyone w ith a sound mathematical background interested in their variousapplications

Note:Complex Networks is a newly emerging field with applications in a variety of domains, such as communication networks, engineering networks, social networks, and biological networks. There has been an explosive growth of researchon complex real-world networks, a theme that is becoming pervasive in many disciplines ranging from mathematics and computer science to the social and biological sciences. Optimization of complex networks with real-world applicationsrequires a deep understanding of the interpl ay between the dynamics of the physical network and the information dynamics within the network. The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks: Theory and Applications provides the basictheory of these networks with several new mathematical approaches and optimization techniques to design and analyze dynamic complex networks. The volume features a wide range of applications and optimization problems derived fromresearch areas such as computer science, operations research, cellular and molecular chemis try, brain physiology, epidemiology, and ecology. This volume, as well as its companion (The Handbook of Optimization in Complex Networks:Communication and Social Networks ISBN: 978-1-4614-0856-7) is an excellent resource for graduate students, researcher s, and practitioners who wish to learn about the most up to date theory and applications on optimization of complexreal-world networks.

The questions considered here are about the structure of singularities and how they function. Inthe first part the authors consider the topological structure of isolated critical points of holomorphic functions: vanis hing cycles distinguished bases intersection matricesmonodromy groupsthe variation operatorand theirinterconnections and method of calculation. The second part is devoted to the study of the asymptotic behavior of integrals of the method of stationary pha se, which is widely met within applications. The third and last part dealswith integrals evaluated over level manifolds in a neighborhood of the critical point of a holomorphic function. Thismonograph is suitablefor mathematicians, researchers, postgradua tes, and specialists in the areas ofmechanics, physics, technology, and other sciences dealing with the theory of singularities of differentiable maps

Publisher:Paris : Atlantis Press
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book is mainly about hybrid systems with continuous/discrete-time dynamics. The major part of the book consists of the theory of equations with piece-wise constant argument of generalized type. The systems as well as techniqueof investigation wer e introduced by the author very recently. They both generalized known theory about differential equations with piece-wise constant argument, introduced by K. Cook and J. Wiener in the 1980s. Moreover, differentialequations with fixed and variable moments of impulses are used to model real world problems. We consider models of neural networks, blood pressure distribution and a generalized model of the cardiac pacemaker. All the results of themanuscript have not been published in any book, yet. They are ver y recent and united with the presence of the continuous/discrete dynamics of time. It is of big interest for specialists in biology, medicine, engineering sciences,electronics. Theoretical aspects of the book meet very strong expectations of mathematician s who investigate differential equations with discontinuities of any type

Note:On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Hermann Gramann (1809-1877), an interdisciplinary conference was held in Potsdam, Germany, and in Gramann's hometown Szczecin, Poland. The idea of the conference was topresent a multi-faceted p icture of Gramann, and to uncover the complexity of the factors that were responsible for his creativity. The conference demonstrated not only the very influential reception of his work at the turn of the20th century, but also the unexpected modernity of his ideas, and their continuing development in the 21st century. This book contains 37 papers presented at the conference. They investigate the significance of Gramann's work forphilosophical as well as for scientific and methodological questions, for com parative philology in general and for Indology in particular, for psychology, physiology, religious studies, musicology, didactics, and, last but not least,mathematics. In addition, the book contains numerous illustrations and English translations of orig inal sources, which are published here for the first time.

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others

Title:Environmental Radiation Effects on Mammals [electronic resource] : A Dynamical Modeling Approach
Author(s): Olga A Smirnova
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text is devoted to the theoretical studies of radiation effects on mammals. It uses the framework of developed deterministic mathematical models to investigate the effects of both acute and chronic irradiation in a wide rangeof doses and dose ra tes on vital body systems including hematopoiesis, small intestine and humoral immunity, as well as on the development of autoimmune diseases. Thus, these models can contribute to the development of the system andquantitative approaches in radiation biolo gy and ecology. This text is also of practical use. Its modeling studies of the dynamics of granulocytopoiesis and thrombocytopoiesis in humans testify to the efficiency of employment of thedeveloped models in the investigation and prediction of radiation effects on these hematopoietic lines. These models, as well as the properly identified models of other vital body systems, could provide a better understanding of theradiation risks to health. The modeling predictions will enable the implementation of mo re effective preventive and protective measures for people residing in areas with elevated radiation background and astronauts on long-term spacemissions. Lastly, the models of the radiation-induced mortality established the theoretical foundations of a n ew individual-based approach to radiation risk assessment. These models thus enable one to predict the mortality dynamics andaverage life-span shortening for individuals and populations exposed to acute and low-level chronic radiation. Because of its theo retical and practical benefits, this book is as useful for academics, scientists and researchers workingin the field of mathematical modeling of biological systems as it is for those working in the fields of radiation biology, ecology and medicine. It is equally useful for Aerospace companies and various corporations that contend withthe problems of environmental protection and radiation safety

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times

Note:Traditional analysis of dynamical systems has restricted its attention to smooth problems, but it has become increasingly clear that there are distinctive phenomena unique to discontinuous systems that can be analyzedmathematically but which fall out side the usual methodology for smooth dynamical systems. The primary purpose of this book is to present a coherent framework for understanding the dynamics of piecewise-smooth and hybrid systems. Aninformal introduction asserts the ubiquity of such models with examples drawn from mechanics, electronics, control theory and physiology. The main thrust is to classify complex behavior via bifurcation theory in a systematic yetapplicable way. The key concept is that of a discontinuity-induced bifurcation, whic h generalizes diverse phenomena such as grazing, border-collision, sliding, chattering and the period-adding route to chaos. The results are presentedin an informal style and illustrated with copious examples, both theoretical and experimental. Aimed at a wide audience of applied mathematicians, engineers and scientists at the early postgraduate level, the book assumes only thestandard background of basic calculus and linear algebra for most of the presentation and will be an indispensable resource for st udents and researchers. The inclusion of a comprehensive bibliography and many open questions will alsoserve as a stimulus for future research

Note:A major challenge in the modeling and simulation of tumor growth is the mathematical description of living matter, which is far more complex than a mathematical description of inert matter. One critical piece of this challenge iscreating multiscale m odels that take into account subcellular, cellular, and macroscopic levels of cancer. The complexity of these different levels requires the development of new mathematical methods and ideas, which are examined inthis work. Written by first-rate researcher s in the field of mathematical biology, this collection of selected chapters offers a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art mathematical methods and tools for modeling and analyzingcancer phenomena. Topics covered include: * Genetic and epigenetic pa thways to colon cancer * A game theoretical perspective on the somatic evolution of cancer * Nonlinear modeling and simulation of tumor growth * Tumor cords and theirresponse to anticancer agents * Modeling diffusely invading brain tumors * Multiphase mod els of tumor growth * Mathematical modeling of breast carcinogenesis * Predictive models in tumor immunology * Multiscale modeling of solid tumorgrowth Selected Topics in Cancer Modeling is an excellent reference for researchers, practitioners, and gradua te students in applied mathematics, mathematical biology, and related fields. The book has an overall aim of quantitative,predictive mathematical modeling of solid tumor growth at all scales, from genetics all the way through to treatment therapy for pati ents

Note:This book is directly derived from a NATO-sponsored international meeting on problems of high altitude medicine and biology, which was held on the shores of lake of Issyk-Kul, in Kyrghyzstan, in June 5-6, 2006. It was a surprisefor several European a nd North and South-American scientists to discover the still on-going momentum high level altitude physiology research, which was extremely active but insufficiently acknowledged in this remote Central Asiancountry at the time of the USSR. Accordingly, th e setting was perfect for numerous positive scientific interactions, exchanges of ideas, and structuring of new international collaborations. Overall, the meeting was an ideal mix of cellbiology, integrative physiology and medical applications. Hypoxia is and remains a major public health issue in many populated mountainous areas all over the world. We are sure that this book will be become a long-lasting essentialreference

Note:This book describes the evolution of several socio-biological systems using mathematical kinetic theory. Specifically, it deals with modeling and simulations of biological systemscomprised of large populations of interactingcellswhose dynamics follow the rules of mechanics as well as rules governed by their own ability to organize movement and biological functions. The authors propose a new biological model for the analysis of competition between cellsof an aggressive host and cells of a correspondin g immune system. Because the microscopic description of a biological system is far more complex than that of a physical system of inert matter, a higher level of analysis is needed todeal with such complexity. Mathematical models using kinetic theory may represent a way to deal with such complexity, allowing for an understanding of phenomena of nonequilibrium statistical mechanics not described by the traditionalmacroscopic approach. The proposed models are related to the generalized Boltzmann equation an d describe the population dynamics of several interacting elements (kinetic population models). The particular models proposed by the authorsare based on a framework related to a system of integro-differential equations, defining the evolution of the dist ribution function over the microscopic state of each element in a given system. Macroscopic information on the behaviorof the system is obtained from suitable moments of the distribution function over the microscopic states of the elements involved. The b ook follows a classical research approach applied to modeling real systems, linking the observationof biological phenomena, collection of experimental data, modeling, and computational simulations to validate the proposed models. Qualitative analysis tech niques are used to identify the prediction ability of specific models. The bookwill be a valuable resource for applied mathematicians as well as researchers in the field of biological sciences. It

Note:The state of the art in Biopharmaceutics, Pharmacokinetics, and Pharmacodynamics Modeling is presented in this book. It shows how advanced physical and mathematical methods can expand classical models in order to coverheterogeneous drug-biological pr ocesses and therapeutic effects in the body. The book is divided into four parts the first deals with the fundamental principles of fractals, diffusion and nonlinear dynamics the second with drugdissolution, release, and absorption the third with empirica l, compartmental, and stochastic pharmacokinetic models, and the fourth mainly with nonclassical aspects of pharmacodynamics. The classical models that have relevance andapplication to these sciences are also considered throughout. Many examples are used to illustrate the intrinsic complexity of drug administration related phenomena in the human, justifying the use of advanced modeling methods. Thistimely and useful book will appeal to graduate students and researchers in pharmacology, pharmaceutical scie nces, bioengineering, and physiology

Title:Tutorials in Mathematical Biosciences II [electronic resource] : Mathematical Modeling of Calcium Dynamics and Signal Transduction
Author(s): James Sneyd
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a series of models in the general area of cell physiology and signal transduction, with particular attention being paid to intracellular calcium dynamics, and the role played by calcium in a variety of celltypes. Calcium plays a cr ucial role in cell physiology, and the study of its dynamics lends insight into many different cellular processes. In particular, calcium plays a central role in muscular contraction, olfactory transduction andsynaptic communication, three of the topics t o be addressed in detail in this book. In addition to the models, this book also presents much of the underlying physiology, so that readers may learn both the mathematics and the physiologyat the same time, and see how the models are applied to specific biological questions. It is thus neither a mathematics book nor a physiology book, but has features from both sides of the fence. It is intended primarily as a graduatetext or a research reference. However, some parts of the book, particularly the introdu ctory chapters on calcium dynamics will be well within the reach of some undergraduates. It will serve as a concise and up-to-date introduction toall those who wish to learn about the state of calcium dynamics modeling, and how such models are applied to physiological questions
