About this book

This volume offers a collection of carefully selected, peer-reviewed papers presented at the BIOMAT 2018 International Symposium, which was held at the University Hassan II, Morocco, from October 29th to November 2nd, 2018. The topics covered include applications of mathematical modeling in hepatitis B, HIV and Chikungunya infections; tumor cell dynamics; inflammatory processes; chemotherapeutic drug effects; and population dynamics. Also discussing the application of techniques like the generalized stochastic Milevsky-Promislov model, numerical simulations and convergence of discrete and continuous models, it is an invaluable resource on interdisciplinary research in mathematical biology for students, researchers, and professionals.
Held every year since 2001, the BIOMAT International Symposium gathers together, in a single conference, researchers from Mathematics, Physics, Biology, and affine fields to promote the interdisciplinary exchange of results, ideas and techniques, promoting truly international cooperation for problem discussion. The 2018 edition of BIOMAT International Symposium received contributions by authors from seventeen countries: Algeria, Brazil, Cameroon, Canada, Chad, Colombia, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Mali, Morocco, Nigeria, Poland, Portugal, Russia, and Senegal. Selected papers presented at the 2017 edition of this Symposium were also published by Springer, in the volume “Trends in Biomathematics: Modeling, Optimization and Computational Problems” (978-3-319-91091-8).

About the authors

Rubem P. Mondaini is President of the BIOMAT Consortium/International Institute for Interdisciplinary Sciences and a Full Professor of Mathematical Biology and Biological Physics at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He holds a PhD in Theoretical Physics from the Brazilian Centre for Physical Research, Brazil.  His research activities abroad include a period as a Visiting Scientist at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Trieste, Italy (1978) and as a Senior Postdoc at the Department of Mathematics of King's College, University of London, UK (1986).  He was also a Visiting Professor at the Centre of Physics of Condensed Matter, Lisbon, Portugal (1986) and at the Department of Chemical Engineering of Princeton University (2008).  He has been the Chairman of the Annual BIOMAT Conferences since their inception during the BIOMAT 2001 Symposium in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
