Advanced Mathematical Modelling of Biofilms and its Applications covers the concepts and fundamentals of biofilms, including sections on numerical discrete and numerical continuum models and different biofilms methods, e.g., the lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) and cellular automata (CA) and integrated LBM and individual-based model (iBM). Other sections focus on design, problem-solving and state-of-the-art modelling methods. Addressing the needs to upgrade and update information and knowledge for students, researchers and engineers on biofilms in health care, medicine, food, aquaculture and industry, this book also covers areas of uncertainty and future needs for advancing the use of biofilm models. Over the past 25-30 years, there have been rapid advances in various areas of computer technologies, applications and methods (e.g. complex programming and algorithms, lattice Boltzmann method, high resolution visualization and high-performance computation). These new and emerging technologies are providing unprecedented opportunities to develop modeling frameworks of biofilms and their applications.
