Non-steady-state diffusion in a multilayered tissue initiated by manipulation of chemical activity at the boundaries.


Diffusion of ionic and nonionic species in multilayered tissues plays an important role in the metabolic processes that take place in these tissues. To create a mathematical model of these diffusion processes, we have chosen as an example hydrogen-bicarbonate ion pair diffusion within the mammalian cornea. This choice was based on the availability of… (More)
