Hi, this is Alessandro Veneziani, originally from Bergamo, Italy.
I am currently Associate Professor at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Emory University, Atlanta, GA USA.

Since 2007 we have been settling down a group of people really pasionate about Applied Math, Partial Differential Equations, Scientific Computing, Cardiovascular Diseases

ETuttoQuiOur mission is to link theory to practice, from Theorems to the Operating Room/Bedside.

We called this E-(CM)2 (no, Einstein is E=mc2), it stands for

Emory - Center for Mathematics and Computing in Medicine (link)

Some explanations and examples (clip)StentPS

Scientific Interests
  1. Stent1Computational Fluid Dynamics

  1. Mathematical and Numerical Models for the Cardiovascular System 

  2. Finite Elements

  3. Applications of Mathematics to Industrial Problems

  4. C++ Programming for Scientific Computing



our activity we develop/use two codes

A Repository of Data on Cerebral Aneurysms

As a follow-up of the ANEURISK Project (2005-2008), we have created a free data repository of images, geometries and CFD Analysis

We do believe that sharing of data and cross checking is a way of making our results more trustworthy
Check it out!

Solving Numerical PDE's
L. Formaggia, F. Saleri, A. Veneziani
Springer 2011

This book aims at introducing students to the numerical approximation of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs). One of the difficulties of this subject is to identify the right trade-off between theoretical concepts and their use in practice. With that collection of examples and exercises we try to address this issue by illustrating "standard" examples which focus on basic concepts of Numerical Analysis, as

well as problems derived from practical applications which the student is encouraged to formalize in terms of PDEs, analyze and solve. The latter examples are derived from the experience of the authors in research project developed in collaboration with scientists of different fields (biology, medicine, etc.) and industry. We wanted this book to be useful both to readers more interested in the theoretical aspects, and also to those more concerned with the numerical implementation. To this aim, solutions to the exercises have been subdivided in three parts. The first concerns the mathematical analysis of the problem, the second its numerical approximation and the third part is devoted to implementation aspects and the analysis of the results. The book consists of three parts. The firstdeals with basic material and results provided as useful reference for the other sections. In particular, we recall the basics of functional analysis and the finite element method. The second part deals with steady elliptic problems, solved with finite elements or finite differences, while in the third part we address time-dependent problems, including linear hyperbolic systems and Navier-Stokes equations. Two appendices discuss some practical implementation issues and three-dimensional applications. Each section contains a brief introduction to the subject to make this book self contained.

The book is dedicated to the memory of Fausto Saleri.

 3 suggestions:

  1.  1) Be part of the solution, NOT the problem

  2.  2) Never give up

     3) Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things

Here's the new grant(s) coming... :D
