Population balance modeling is undergoing phenomenal growth in its applications, and this growth is accompanied by multifarious reviews. This review aims to fortify the model's fundamental base, as well as point to a variety of new applications, including modeling of crystal morphology, cell growth and differentiation, gene regulatory processes, and transfer of drug resistance. This is accomplished by presenting the many faces of population balance equations that arise in the foregoing… Expand

Crystal Population Balance Formulation and Solution Methods: A Review
Crystallization is an important part of many chemical industries. Efforts are being invested to improve the performance of the crystallization process by designing novel crystallizers. An importantExpand
Hybrid Simulation of Heterogeneous Cell Populations
TLDR
It is shown that important features of the population density function, such as its moments or marginals, can be approximated by this scheme in a statistically converging way. Expand
Single-cell histories in growing populations: relating physiological variability to population growth
TLDR
It is highlighted that the maximum attainable population growth cannot exceed the rate at which anaverage cell grows, but the population doubles faster than an average cell doubles its size, which provides fundamental limits on population fitness in terms of individual cell properties. Expand
Computational Modeling as an Approach to Study the Cellular and Molecular Regulatory Networks Driving Liver Regeneration
TLDR
A previously published coarse-grain model of liver regeneration was extended and simulated a wide range of scenarios, revealing that the regeneration phenotype is most impacted by the physiological parameters and the kinetics of nonparenchymal cells. Expand
Modelling biochemical engineering processes related to cell populations
TLDR
An ODE and SDE model is formulated to capture the behaviour of an existing agent-based model of tumour cell reprogramming, a novel theory about cancer being exposed to factors found during embryonic development, and applied to optimization of possible treatment as well as dosage sensitivity analysis.

A numerical study on the estimation of the stable size distribution for a cell population balance model
The presence of a steady-state distribution is an important issue in the modelization of cell populations. In this paper, we analyse, from a numerical point of view, the approach to the stable sizeExpand

Identification of age‐structured models: Cell cycle phase transitions
TLDR
The proposed methodology is implemented to identify an age‐structured model for human leukemia cells (Jurkat) based only on measurements of the total number density after the addition of bromodeoxyuridine, which can identify age distributions, age‐specific transition rates, and transition‐age distributions during balanced growth conditions.
