Developing simulation technology to solve biomedical problems: analysis, implementation and applications

Marie E. Rognes
Center for Biomedical Computing
Oslo, Norway


The Center for Biomedical Computing at Simula Research Laboratory develops and applies new mathematical models and simulation technology to reach new understanding of complex clinical processes affecting human health. In this talk, I will give an overview of some of the research activities in the center emphasizing: (1) analysis of new numerical methods that handle complex geometries flexibly such as cut finite element methods, (2) analysis of new robust mixed finite element methods for biological tissue, (3) development of new numerical software for automated forward and inverse solution of (partial) differential equations via finite element methods (FEniCS, dolfin-adjoint) with biomedical applications.
