Systemic Wound Healing Associated with local sub-Cutaneous Mechanical Stimulation

Degeneration is a hallmark of autoimmune diseases, whose incidence grows worldwide. Current therapies attempt to control the immune response to limit degeneration, commonly promoting immunodepression. Differently, mechanical stimulation is known to trigger healing (regeneration) and it has recently…

A multi-component discrete Boltzmann model for nonequilibrium reactive flows

We propose a multi-component discrete Boltzmann model (DBM) for premixed, nonpremixed, or partially premixed nonequilibrium reactive flows. This model is suitable for both subsonic and supersonic flows with or without chemical reaction and/or external force. A two-dimensional sixteen-velocity model…

Markov Processes and Fourier Analysis as a Tool to Describe and Simulate Daily Solar Irradiance

Numerical Approximations of a Traffic Flow Model on Networks

We consider a mathematical model for fluid-dynamic flows on networks which is based on conservation laws. Road networks are considered as graphs composed by arcs that meet at some junctions. The crucial point is represented by junctions, where interactions occurr and the problem is underdetermined…

RNASeqGUI: a GUI for analysing RNA-Seq data

Summary: We present RNASeqGUI R package, a graphical user interface (GUI) for the identification of differentially expressed genes across multiple biological conditions. This R package includes some wellk-nown RNA-Seq tools, available at www.bioconductor.org. RNASeqGUI package is not just a…

Comparing comparisons between vehicular traffic states in microscopic and macroscopic first-order models

In this paper we deal with the analysis of the solutions of traffic flow models at multiple scales, both in the case of a single road and of road networks. We are especially interested in measuring the distance between traffic states (as they result from the mathematical modeling) and investigating…

Application of WENO-Positivity-Preserving Schemes to Highly Under-Expanded Jets

The starting transient of highly under-expanded supersonic jets is studied by means of very high resolution weighted essentially non oscillatory finite volume schemes, coupled with a positivity-preserving scheme in order to ensure positivity of pressure and density for high compression/expansion…

Hybrid lattice Boltzmann model for binary fluid mixtures

A hybrid lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) for binary mixtures based on the free-energy approach is proposed. Nonideal terms of the pressure tensor are included as a body force in the LBM kinetic equations, used to simulate the continuity and Navier-Stokes equations. The convection-diffusion equation…

Controlling release from encapsulated drug-loaded devices: insights from modeling the dissolution front propagation

Dissolution of drug from its solid form to a dissolved form is an important consideration in the design and optimization of drug delivery devices, particularly owing to the abundance of emerging compounds that are extremely poorly soluble. When the solid dosage form is encapsulated, for example by…
