This chapter presents an overview and introduction to blood coagulation models. The historical exposure of the development of classical coagulation modeling theories is followed by a basic overview of blood coagulation biochemistry. The recent developments of cell-based models are explained in detail to demonstrate the current shift from the classical cascade/waterfall models. This phenomenological overview is followed by a survey of available mathematical concepts used to describe the blood coagulation process at various spatial scales including some of the related biophysical phenomena. A comprehensive survey of basic literature is provided for each of these topics.
