Revealing the topology of circulatory networks in nature

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

Complex networks such as those used for communication and resource delivery, and transportation are ubiquitous in nature and society. From the Internet and urban traffic, to the intimate networks of the circulatory systems in our bodies, understanding how their topology and structure relates to their function and efficiency is an essential first step in their management. - For vascular networks, pathological restructuring arises under hypertension; but presently, we have no way to non-invasively probe the affected structure of these essential networks. Currently, great effort is being invested by physicists, mathematicians and engineers to find a way of inferring the structural connectivity of a complex network that is composed of many interacting units.

The underlying idea behind inferring the structural connectivity of complex networks is to stimulate some of the interacting units in different ways and to measure the global response. The network structure is then inferred by analyzing the responses.

Technical University of Denmark

For almost two centuries DTU, Technical University of Denmark, has been dedicated to fulfilling the vision of H.C. Ørsted – the father of electromagnetism – who founded the university in 1829 to develop and create value using the natural sciences and the technical sciences to benefit society.


Today, DTU is ranked as one of the foremost technical universities in Europe, continues to set new records in the number of publications, and persistently increases and develops our partnerships with industry, and assignments accomplished by DTU’s public sector consultancy.
