Introduction to Mathematical Physiology


Human body consists of a collection of complex organs. It is vital for human lives that those organs collaborate well in their functions. Mathematical Sciences has been applied in physiology, recently, to give us new insights and understandings such as, how the organs works and why it does not work well under some conditions.
For this series of lectures, international researchers will give omnibus lectures regarding several latest topics of Mathematical Physiology.


The lecture is omnibus lecture series and the latest topics in Mathematical Physiology are introduced by international researchers.
