The logistic differential equation is used to analyze cancer cell population, in the presence of a correlated Gaussian white noise. We study the steady state properties of tumor cell growth and discuss the effects of the correlated noise. It is found that the degree of correlation of the noise can cause tumor cell extinction.
Numerical simulations of pulsating blood flow through models of stenotic and tapered arteries have been performed to investigate the distributions of the wall shear stress. In this paper, a mathematical model of a rigid tapered artery with axially symmetric stenosis is established. The incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are solved numerically by using… (More)
Transport of a Brownian particle moving along the axis of a three-dimensional asymmetric periodic tube is investigated in the presence of asymmetric unbiased forces. The reduction of the coordinates may involve not only the appearance of entropic barrier but also the effective diffusion coefficient. It is found that in the presence of entropic barrier, the… (More)
We study the steady state properties of an insect (spruce budworm) outbreak model in the presence of Gaussian white noise. Based on the corresponding Fokker-Planck equation the steady state solution of the probability distribution function and its extrema have been investigated. It was found that fluctuations of the insect birth rate reduces the population… (More)
In this paper, a previous coarse-grain model [J. T. Padding and W. J. Briels, J. Chem. Phys. 117, 925 (2002)] to simulate melts of linear polymers has been adapted to simulate polymers with more complex hierarchies. Bond crossings between highly coarse-grained soft particles are prevented by applying an entanglement algorithm. We first test our method on a… (More)
We study the steady state properties of a genotype selection model in presence of correlated Gaussian white noise. The effect of the noise on the genotype selection model is discussed. It is found that correlated noise can break the balance of gene selection and induce the phase transition which can makes us select one type gene haploid from a gene group.
This paper investigates a three-dimensional periodic tube driven by spatially modulated Gaussian white noise. We derive an analytical expression for the net current by introducing entropic barriers. It is found that the phase shift between the entirely symmetric tube and noise modulation can break the symmetry of the generalized potential and induce… (More)
A Brownian pump in nonlinear diffusive media is investigated in the presence of an unbiased external force. The pumping system is embedded in a finite region and bounded by two particle reservoirs. In the adiabatic limit, we obtain the analytical expressions of the current and the pumping capacity as a function of temperature for normal diffusion,… (More)
Based on recent work [L. Machura, M. Kostur, P. Talkner, J. Luczka, and P. Hanggi, Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 040601 (2007)], we extend the study of inertial Brownian motors to the case of an asymmetric potential. It is found that some transport phenomena appear in the presence of an asymmetric potential. Within tailored parameter regimes, there exists two… (More)
A Brownian pump of particles in an asymmetric finite tube is investigated in the presence of an unbiased external force. The pumping system is bounded by two particle reservoirs. It is found that the particles can be pumped through the tube from a reservoir at low concentration to one at the same or higher concentration. There exists an optimized value of… (More)
