Incorporating curvature to the boundary of linear and highorder meshes when a target geometry is unavailable Jiménez Ramos, Albert (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-10)
Covenantee: Barcelona Supercomputing CentreIn this work, two new methods are presented: first, a given linear tetrahedral volume mesh is refined in such a way that its boundary tends to an almost everywhere C^2-continuous surface, and second, a curved high-order ...
Theoretical and numerical examination of a nonlinear active gel model for the actin cortex of cells Jiménez Ramos, Albert (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-07)
Open AccessIn this thesis we review some basic concepts of tensors and differential geometry and apply them to model the actin cortex, an active envelop that determines the shape and mechanical properties of animal cells. The model ...
