A model of the simple chemostat which allows for growth on the wall (or other marked surface) is presented as three nonlinear ordinary differential equations. The organisms which are attached to the wall do not wash out of the chemostat. This destroys the basic reduction of the chemostat equations to a monotone system, a technique which has been useful in the analysis of many chemostat-like equations. The adherence to and shearing from the wall eliminates the boundary equilibria. For a…

A mathematical model of microbial competition for limiting nutrient and wall-attachment sites in a chemostat, formulated by Freter et al, is mathematically analyzed and two bistable scenarios are of more relevance to the colonization resistance phenomena.

A surprising finding in the case of two-strain competition is the existence of a steady state solution characterized by the segregation of the two bacterial strains to separate nonoverlapping segments along the tubular reactor.

The newly developing theory ofnonautonomous dynamical systems provides the necessary concepts, in particular that of a nonautonomous pullback attractor, to analyze the dynamical behavior of nonaut autonomous chemostat models with or without wall growth, time-dependent delays, variable inputs and outputs.
