Title:Multiscale models of chemotaxis
Seminar:Computational and Applied Mathematics Colloquium
Speaker:Chuan Xue, Ohio State University Mathematics
Chemotaxis is the directed movement of cells in response to extracellular chemical signals. Chemotaxis of cell populations have been modelled using both continuum models which involves systems of PDEs, and cell-based models that describe movement of each cell as a stochastic process with internal dynamics. In this talk, I will review current theory of both approaches and discuss recent developments on derivation of continuum models from cell-based models in the context of bacterial chemotaxis.
