This work studies two mathematical models for describing the motion of phototactic bacteria, i.e., bacteria that move toward light. Based on experimental observations, we conjecture that the motion of the colony toward light depends on certain group dynamics. These group dynamics are hypothesized to be coordinated through an individual property of each(More)
In this paper we introduce new models for describing the motion of phototaxis, i.e. bacteria that move towards light. Following experimental observations, the first model describes the locations of bacteria, an internal property of the bacteria that is related to the group dynamics, and the interaction between the bacteria and the medium in which it(More)
Abstract. This work presents a hierarchy of mathematical models for describing the motion of phototactic bacteria, i.e., bacteria that move towards light. Based on experimental observations, we conjecture that the motion of the colony towards light depends on certain group dynamics. This group dynamics is assumed to be encoded as an individual property of(More)
