In silico characterisation of venous valve dynamics

28 February 2019
The role of the venous valve in venous haemodynamics remains poorly understood. However, changes in valve behaviour have been identified as factors associated with a number of venous disorders including deep vein thrombosis and chronic venous insufficiency.
DTC MATH 8 - Tropical geometry and scheme theory
Dr J Giansiracusa
Applications accepted all year round
Over past few years Giansiracusa and others have initiated a new foundation for the type of polyhedral geometry known as tropical geometry; this foundation is rooted in the combinatorial theory of matroids, the algebra of idempotent semirings, and Grothendieck’s theory of schemes.
