    Modeling cell adhesion and proliferation: a cellular-automata based approach

    Cell adhesion is a process that involves the interaction between the cell membrane and another surface, either a cell or a substrate. Unlike experimental tests, computer models can simulate processes and study...

    Towards a pancreatic surgery simulator based on model order reduction

    In this work a pancreatic surgery simulator is developed that provides the user with haptic feedback. The simulator is based on the use of model order reduction techniques, particularly Proper Generalized Deco...

    The role of cell lysis and matrix deposition in tumor growth modeling

    The multiphase model for tumor growth, proposed by the authors in previous works, is here enhanced. The original model includes a solid phase, the extracellular matrix (ECM) and three fluid phases: living and...
