Description

A flexible, cell-level, and lattice-based technique, the cellular Potts model accurately describes the phenomenological mechanisms involved in many biological processes. Cellular Potts Models: Multiscale Extensions and Biological Applications gives an interdisciplinary, accessible treatment of these models, from the original methodologies to the la

About the Authors

Marco Scianna is a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Politecnico di Torino. He earned a Ph.D. in complex systems in post-genomic biology from the University of Turin. His principal research focuses on mathematical multiscale models applied to biological and biomedical problems, with particular interest in the context of tumor growth, vascular network formation, and cell migration in extracellular matrix.

Luigi Preziosi is a professor of mathematical physics at the Politecnico di Torino. He earned a Ph.D. in mechanics from the University of Minnesota and in mathematics from the University of Naples. He has authored three books, more than 30 book chapters, and more than 100 articles in international journals. His recent research interests include multiphase models of tumor growth, the mechanics of tissue growth and regenerations, cell migration, and vascular network formation.
