The reproductive system is composed of complex sub-systems, which are driven by sophisticated biochemical processes, whereas their performance is controlled by the same physical laws that exist in any mechanical process on Earth (e.g., Newton’s laws). Accordingly, the understanding of any physiological phenomenon requires comprehensive evaluation of the biophysical and biomechanical aspects of reproduction in concert with the biological and clinical features. Scientists from around the world who investigate the physical aspects of the reproductive system have contributed to the eight sessions resulting in this volume.
