Cilia and flagella are essential building blocks for biological fluid transport and locomotion at the micron scale. They often beat…arXiv:1708.02181
The Biophysical Modeling group focuses on the modeling and simulation of complex systems that arise in biology and soft condensed matter physics.
Areas of interest include the dynamics of complex and active materials, and aspects of collective behavior and self-assembly in both natural systems (e.g., inside the cell) and synthetic ones. Our approach is based on mathematical modeling and analysis, the development and application of software tools for large-scale biophysical simulation, and close collaboration with experimentalists.
An important but missing component in the application of the kernel independent fast multipole method (KIFMM) is the capability for…arXiv
