Brief history of the project-team

The MAMBA (Modelling and Analysis in Medical and Biological Applications) team is the continuation of the BANG (Biophysique, Analyse Numérique et Géophysique) team, which itself was a continuation of the former project-team M3N. Historically, the BANG team, headed by Benoît Perthame during 11 years (2003-2013), has developed models, simulations and numerical algorithms for two kinds of problems involving dynamics of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs).

Problems from life sciences (cell motion, early embryonic development, tissue growth and regeneration, cancer modelling, pharmacology,...) have been considered, that still constitute the core of MAMBA. Models for complex fluid flows (shallow water models, flows with a free surface) were studied until december 2012, when the scientists in charge of the “Géophysique” part left BANG to constitute the new Inria team ANGE ( ), while the remaining (“Biophysique”) part of the BANG team continue their research work within the new Inria team MAMBA, now headed by Marie Doumic.
