Overview

IV Mexican Meeting on Mathematical and Experimental Physics: Relativistic Fluids and Biological Physics / Edition 1

Subjects dealt with in this conference covered the most relevant aspects of the properties of relativistic fluids of great importance today in many astrophysical problems as well as in the study of dense nuclear matter at very high temperatures. Special attention was given to diffusion in biological systems.
