Section: Overall Objectives
BANG (Biophysique, Analyse Numérique et Géophysique) is a continuation of the former project M3N. It aims at developing models and numerical methods for two kinds of problems involving Partial Differential Equations. Firstly problems from life sciences (cell movement, early embryonic development, tissue growth and regeneration, cancer modeling, pharmacology,...) are considered. Secondly models for complex fluid flows are studied (flows with a free surface, flows of holes and electrons in semiconductors).
The common scientific features behind these applications come from models involving coupled systems of PDEs (as Keller-Segel or Saint-Venant systems) that are solved (simulated) on computers involving new algorithms.
