Advanced Computational Methods for Biomedical Engineers

This course covers advanced computational methods from a biomedical engineering perspective. Linear and nonlinear systems, partial differential equations, optimization and inverse problems will be discussed. Advanced computational techniques are increasingly needed in today’s biomedical engineering. For example, one needs a nonlinear system to describe a model or problem in neural engineering. Finite element has been a powerful numerical method to deal with many problems in biomechanics and biomaterials where partial differential equations are involved. Inverse problems are common almost everywhere in the field of biomedical imaging. This course is geared towards the applications of the advanced computational techniques to various biomedical engineering problems.
