E-edition, Alfons Hoekstra, Enschede, the Netherlands, 2000, 191 pp. The study of Elastic Light Scattering (ELS) from human white bloodcells (leukocytes) is the guiding research theme of this thesis. This problem will be addressed from a computational and an experimental point of view. Such an interdisciplinary approach tries to combine the very different fields of experimental biophysics, physics of ELS, and computational science. The main part of the thesis consists of the development of a computer simulation of ELS and subsequent applications. In that respect the computational study of ELS serves as a very rich example application for modern computational science, where feasibility of Massively Parallel Processing to solve real problems is a major research item.Contents.
