Several hydrodynamic systems can be viewed as consisting of interconnected flow regions with various types of flow in and between regions called compartments.
The mixing in multi-scale compartmental systems is analyzed. Discrete and continuous time models are developed using model categorification method.
RTD for tracer experiments in hydrological systems is described in terms of Laguerre polynomials.
Local anesthetic effects on multi-compartmental membranes are studied.
