AbstractThe impact of mathematical and computational models in the study of biophysical phenomena has been growing steadily for the past two decades. This in turn leads to new mathematical challenges and questions that require the use of sophisticated tools in a broad spectrum of areas ranging from analysis and partial differential equations to group theory. Such areas include, for instance, computational mathematics, dynamical systems, geometry, inverse problems, and probability. During the period of March 15th through 21st, 2009, the workshop on Mathematical Methods and Modeling of Biophysical Phenomena was held in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This was the sixth of a series of workshops organized by IMPA aiming at bringing together a multidisciplinary group of scientists to study problems in the biophysical sciences upon which mathematics impacts.
