Hemo-dynamics (Hardcover) (Mair Zamir)
about this item
This book is devoted to the mathematical, physical, and biological aspects of fluids and fluid flow in relation to blood flow. The phenomenon of fluids and fluid flow is as essential to life as it is ubiquitous in all forms of life, and blood flow is one of its most spectacular manifestations. Hemo-Dynamics takes off from the author’s previous two Springer titles, The Physics of Pulsatile Flow (2000) and The Physics of Coronary Blood Flow (2005) but the material is completely original.
Hemo-Dynamics is accessible to readers ranging in background from the clinical to the mathematical. The subject matter is presented with sufficient detail—mathematical detail in particular—to provide both a useful textbook and a resource companion for research. However, an interested reader can still bypass the mathematics yet enjoy and get the gist of most of the main concepts, making this quite a unique title on hemodynamics as well as fluid dynamics.
