ANALYSIS OF OXYGEN TRANSPORT IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS


The application of physics and mathematics for modeling oxygen transport. Emphasis on problem solving and simple MATLAB computer models for enhancing the students' interpretation of analytical solutions. Topics include the Krogh-Erlang capillary model, microvascular blood flow, oxygen diffusion in thin tissues and tumors, and finite difference models in unsteady-state systems.

Prerequisite(s): One of Calculus 1000A/B, Calculus 1500A/B plus one of Calculus 1301A/B or Calculus 1501A/B, or Applied Mathematics 1413; one of Physics 1028A/B, Physics 1301A/B, Physics 1401A/B or Physics 1501A/B, and one of Physics 1029A/B, Physics 1302A/B, Physics 1402A/B or Physics 1502A/B. Although typically taken in third year, this course is available to second-year students with an overall average of at least 70% in first year.
