Theory of Living Matter Group

Second Tutorial of the Theory of Living Matter Group


In this tutorial Edouard Hannezo will give an Introduction to the Modelling of Forces in Biological Tissues. The lecture is intended to be understandable for a broad audience with an interest in and basic knowledge of mathematics. No preliminary knowledge in non linear dynamics will be required. However, participants are supposed to have basic training in mathematical methods, especially differential equations and some linear algebra.

Forces play an essential role in biological processes such as development, cancer and homeostatic tissue regeneration. In this tutorial I will give an introduction to the theoretical methods that can be used to understand these forces and the ensuing tissue dynamics.

After the talk there will be plenty of time for informal discussions. We will serve some snacks.
