Algorithm for Mesoscopic Advection–Diffusion

  title={Algorithm for Mesoscopic Advection–Diffusion},
  author={Adam Noel and Dimitrios Makrakis},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on NanoBioscience},
In this paper, an algorithm is presented to calculate the transition rates between adjacent mesoscopic subvolumes in the presence of flow and diffusion. These rates can be integrated in stochastic simulations of reaction-diffusion systems that follow a mesoscopic approach, i.e., that partition the environment into homogeneous subvolumes and apply the spatial stochastic simulation algorithm (spatial SSA). The rates are derived by integrating Fick’s second law over a single subvolume in 1D and…

Isolating the sources of heterogeneity in nano-engineered particle–cell interactions

Coupled Mesoscopic and Microscopic Simulation of Stochastic Reaction-Diffusion Processes in Mixed Dimensions

In an appropriate limit the Gillespie algorithm reproduces exact solutions of the heat equation for a purely diffusive system and the nonlinear reaction-rate equation describing the cubic autocatalytic reaction.
Simulation of Stochastic Reaction-Diffusion Processes on Unstructured Meshes

Reaction rates for a generalized reaction-diffusion master equation.
This paper extends the standard reaction-diffusion master equation to allow molecules occupying neighboring voxels to react, in contrast to the traditional approach, in which molecules react only when occupying the same voxel.
