Minisymposium Title: Modeling, Analysis and Simulation of Bio/Complex Fluids

Minisymposium Description: Complex fluids are materials with a complicated microstructure, which can exhibit both viscous and?elastic behaviors, for example polymer and surfactant solutions. Properties of these fluids can be exploited to produce materials useful in industrial (soaps and gels) and biological (blood flow and?drug delivery) applications. The physics and dynamics of complex fluids are nontrivial, for example elastic instabilities such as shear banding, requiring detailed modeling combined with intricate?analytic and simulation methods. The goal of this symposium is to bring together mathematicians and practitioners in the area to advance the subject through discussion and collaboration. Transients in Taylor-Couette Flow of the
