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, Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1412A/B or the former Applied Mathematics 1412A/B, plus one of Calculus 1301A/B, Calculus 1501A/B, Numerical and Mathematical Methods 1414A/B or the former Applied Mathematics 1414A/B, or the former Applied Mathematics 1413; one of Physics 1201A/B, Physics 1401A/B, Physics 1501A/B, the former Physics 1028A/B, the former Physics 1301A/B; and one of Physics 1202A/B, Physics 1402A/B, Physics 1502A/B, the former Physics 1029A/B, the former Physics 1302A/B. Integrated Science 1001X can be used as a prerequisite in place of Calculus 1301A/B and Physics 1202A/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.
