Kinetic models of chemotaxis
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
AbstractChemotaxis is the directed motion of cells towards higher concentrations of chemoattractants. At the microscopic level it is modeled by a nonlinear kinetic transport equation with a quadratic nonlinearity. We'll discuss global existence results obtained using dispersion and Strichartz estimates, as well as some blow up results. (joint work with Vincent Calvez, Susana Gutierrez and Benoit Perthame).
If it doesn't, something may have gone wrong with our embedded player.
We'll get it fixed as soon as possible.
