This paper is concerned with a non-homogeneous in space and non-local in time random walk model for anomalous subdiffusive transport of cells. Starting with a Markov model involving a structured probability density function, we derive the non-local in time master equation and fractional equation for the probability of cell position. We derive the fractional(More)
We studied the propagation of traveling fronts into an unstable state of the reaction-transport systems involving integral transport. By using a hyperbolic scaling procedure and singular perturbation techniques, we determined a Hamiltonian structure of reaction-transport equations. This structure allowed us to derive asymptotic formulas for the propagation(More)
We derive the fractional master equation with space-dependent anomalous exponent. We analyze the asymptotic behavior of the corresponding lattice model both analytically and by Monte Carlo simulation. We show that the subdiffusive fractional equations with constant anomalous exponent μ in a bounded domain [0,L] are not structurally stable with respect to(More)
The proliferation and migration dichotomy of the tumor cell invasion is examined within a two-component continuous time random walk (CTRW) model. The balance equations for the cancer cells of two phenotypes with random switching between cell proliferation and migration are derived. The transport of tumor cells is formulated in terms of the CTRW with an(More)
The front speed problem for nonuniform reaction rate and diffusion coefficient is studied by using singular perturbation analysis, the geometric approach of Hamilton-Jacobi dynamics, and the local speed approach. Exact and perturbed expressions for the front speed are obtained in the limit of large times. For linear and fractal heterogeneities, the analytic(More)
The main aim of the paper is to incorporate the nonlinear kinetic term into non-Markovian transport equations described by a continuous time random walk (CTRW) with nonexponential waiting time distributions. We consider three different CTRW models with reactions. We derive nonlinear Master equations for the mesoscopic density of reacting particles(More)
In this article we address the problem of the nonlinear interaction of subdiffusive particles. We introduce the random walk model in which statistical characteristics of a random walker such as escape rate and jump distribution depend on the mean density of particles. We derive a set of nonlinear subdiffusive fractional master equations and consider their(More)
A new asymptotic method is presented for the analysis of the traveling waves in the one-dimensional reaction-diffusion system with the diffusion with a finite velocity and Kolmogorov-Petrovskii-Piskunov kinetics. The analysis makes use of the path-integral approach, scaling procedure and the singular perturbation techniques involving the large deviations(More)

The problem of wave-front propagation for the n-dimensional reaction-diffusion system involving Kolmogorov-Petrovskii-Piskunov kinetics and the diffusion transport with a finite velocity has been considered. By using a scaling procedure we have given an asymptotic derivation of the equation governing the evolution of a reaction front in the long-time(More)
We propose a two-component reaction-transport model for the migration-proliferation dichotomy in the spreading of tumor cells. By using a continuous time random walk (CTRW), we formulate a system of the balance equations for the cancer cells of two phenotypes with random switching between cell proliferation and migration. The transport process is formulated(More)
