Mathematics inspired by biology : lectures given at the 1st session of the Centro internazionale matematico estivo (C.I.M.E.), held in Martina Franca, Italy, June 13-20, 1997 by O Diekmann( Book )

23 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The summer school on Mathematics inspired by Biology was held at Martina Franca, Apulia, Italy in 1997. This volume presents five series of six lectures each. The common theme is the role of structure in shaping transient and ultimate dynamics. But the type of structure ranges from spatial (hadeler and maini in the deterministic setting, Durrett in the stochastic setting) to physiological (Diekmann) and order (Smith). Each contribution sketches the present state of affairs while, by including some wishful thinking, pointing at open problems that deserve attention
Mathematical modelling of industrial processes : lectures given at the 3rd Session of the Centro Internazionale Matematico Estivo (C.I.M.E.) held in Bari, Italy, Sept. 24-29, 1990 by Stavros N Busenberg( Book )

16 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1990 CIME course on Mathematical Modelling of Industrial Processes set out to illustrate some advances in questions of industrial mathematics, i.e.of the applications of mathematics (with all its "academic" rigour) to real-life problems. The papers describe the genesis of the models and illustrate their relevant mathematical characteristics. Among the themesdealt with are: thermally controlled crystal growth, thermal behaviour of a high-pressure gas-discharge lamp, the sessile-drop problem, etching processes, the batch-coil- annealing process, inverse problems in classical dynamics, image representation and dynamical systems, scintillation in rear projections screens, identification of semiconductor properties,pattern recognition with neural networks. CONTENTS: H.K. Kuiken: Mathematical Modelling of Industrial Processes.- B. Forte: Inverse Problems in Mathematics for Industry.- S. Busenberg: Case Studies in Industrial Mathematics

Topics in spatial stochastic processes : lectures given at the C.I.M.E. summer school held in Martina Franca, Italy, July 1-8, 2001 by Summer School on Spatial Stochastic Processes( Book )

16 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theory of stochastic processes indexed by a partially ordered set has been the subject of much research over the past twenty years. The objective of this CIME International Summer School was to bring to a large audience of young probabilists the general theory of spatial processes, including the theory of set-indexed martingales and to present the different branches of applications of this theory, including stochastic geometry, spatial statistics, empirical processes, spatial estimators and survival analysis. This theory has a broad variety of applications in environmental sciences, social sciences, structure of material and image analysis. In this volume, the reader will find different approaches which foster the development of tools to modelling the spatial aspects of stochastic problems

Mathematical structures of epidemic systems by Vincenzo Capasso( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mathematical modelling of communicable diseases has in the past decades been the subject of intense research activity, on the part of both epidemiologists and biomathematicians; nonlinear forces of infection, spatial structure, age structure and other relevant features have been integrated to make the models more and more realistic and useful in prediction and control. The author's perspective in this book is that there is a concrete possibility of classifying most of the available models according to their mathematical structure, so to obtain a solid framework for analysing the behaviour of the modelled epidemic systems. This monograph suggests a possible classification of a large amount of models (bilinear, nonlinear, with or without structure), based on the Lyapunov stability theory and the theory of order preserving dynamical systems. The volume contains an original presentation of many worked out examples and case studies, mainly based on the author's experience, fully integrated with the exposition of the theory. It also contains a revisit of the most recent advances in the modelling of epidemics, including HIV/AIDS. Two appendices have been added for the ease of non-mathematicians. This monograph may be viewed as a research monograph for mathematically-oriented epidemiologists and for applied mathematicians. However, the detailed presentation of the methods make it a self-contained introduction to the mathematical modelling of infectious diseases so that it may also be used as a textbook in advanced courses of mathematical modelling in Biology and Medicine. The long and updated list of references makes this monograph a valuable survey of the subject. In this second printing of the book the author has corrected all detected misprints, and updated the bibliography items

Multiscale problems in the life sciences : from microscopic to macroscopic : lectures given at the Banach Center and C.I.M.E. joint summer school held in Będlewo, Poland, September 4-9, 2006 by J Banasiak( Book )

20 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this volume that presents Lectures given at a joint CIME and Banach Center Summer School, is to offer a broad presentation of a class of updated methods providing a mathematical framework for the development of a hierarchy of models of complex systems in the natural sciences, with a special attention to Biology and Medicine. Mastering complexity implies sharing different tools requiring much higher level of communication between different mathematical and scientific schools, for solving classes of problems of the same nature. Today more than ever, one of the most important challenges derives from the need to bridge parts of a system evolving at different time and space scales, especially with respect to computational affordability. As a result the content has a rather general character; the main role is played by stochastic processes, positive semigroups, asymptotic analysis, kinetic theory, continuum theory and game theory
