Saul Goldman has continued his fundamental research into gas dynamics, which runs parallel to his personal interests of scuba diving! One of the key practical issues that his work addresses is the timing of divers' return to the surface in order to avoid 'the bends', where bubbles of N2 form in the bloodstream, with painful, sometimes fatal, consequences. Saul has been trying to replace empirical 'dive tables' with information that couples physical interactions, better statistical models, and a more realistic understanding of how bubbles behave in the bloodstream.
Saul and his collaborators have just published "Gas Bubble Dynamics in the Human Body", though Academic Press/Elsevier. This book combines Saul's research using statistical mechanics with the insights of medical practitioners to give fundamental and applied components in a single volume.
