Summary: Colloquium
Alfons Hoekstra (UvA)
A Multiscale Modelling & Computing Framework and
selected Applications for the Virtual Physiological Human
Tuesday 21 February, Citadel H-327, 15:45-16:30
Despite the ever increasing interest in Multiscale Modelling & Com-
puting (MM&C) there still seems to be a lack of generic mathemat-
ical & computational frameworks that capture the main ingredients
of MM&C. I will present one attempt, Complex Automata, and il-
lustrate the potential of such generic MM&C frameworks through
a number of canonical examples. Next I will zoom in to the Virtual
Physiological Human, and apply the formalism to two systems, that
of in-stent restenosis in coronary arteries and thrombus formation
in intracranial aneurysms.
Dr. Ir. Alfons Hoekstra studied physics in Twente, and got his PhD in Computational Physics
from the University of Amsterdam. Currently he is Associate Professor in Computational Science
at that same university. His main research interests are in Multiscale Modelling, and High Per-
formance - and Distributed Computing, with applications mainly in the biomedical domain. See
