*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

"The two books edited by Constantine Pozrikidis [see also Modeling and Simulation of Capsules and Biological Cells] deal primarily with mathematical evaluations and in silico investigations (modeling and simulations) of particles in motion. ... they complement each other in that information provided in one book is either absent, described in more detail, or expanded upon in the other. ... Both books contain a collection of chapters contributed by investigators from around the world who provide their expert experiences in fields such as biology and physiology, mathematics, mechanical and chemical engineering, as well as computer and information science. ... well written and structured, and the sequence of topics presented in the chapters is appropriate. ... Both books are fascinating ... a welcome addition to the growing number of publications in the fast-advancing field of biological dynamics." -Christian T.K.-H. Stadtlander, Journal of Biological Dynamics, Vol. 7, 2013 "This book gives a quite extensive overview of different possible formulations for the motion of rigid or deforming particles and for the solution of flow-induced deformations. A wide range of numerical and methodological approaches are illustrated ... The presence of many numerical examples allows one to appreciate the capabilities of the approaches proposed and provides useful reference material. ... this book is a highly valuable reference for any graduate student or researcher interested in cellular mechanics, bio-fluid dynamics, bio-rheology or, in general, applications involving the transport of micro-capsules or cells by a fluid. It is accompanied by an Internet site where some additional material, including MATLAB code, may be found." -Luca Formaggia, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012a Read more...
