The book comprises contributions by some of the most respected scientists in the field of mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of the human cardiocirculatory system. The contributions cover a wide range of topics, from the preprocessing of clinical data to the development of mathematical equations, their numerical solution, and both in-vivo and in-vitro validation. They discuss the flow in the systemic arterial tree and the complex electro-fluid-mechanical coupling in the human heart. Many examples of patient-specific simulations are presented. This book is addressed to all scientists interested in the mathematical modeling and numerical simulation of the human cardiocirculatory system.

Prof. Alfio Quarteroni, Professor of Modelling and Scientific Computing at the School of Mathematics of EPFL, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (Switzerland) and Director of the Mathematics Institute of Computational Science and Engineering (MATHICSE) at EPFL, Lausanne (Switzerland).
