Use of the parameterised finite element method to robustly and efficiently evolve the edge of a moving cell.

Abstract

In this paper we present a computational tool that enables the simulation of mathematical models of cell migration and chemotaxis on an evolving cell membrane. Recent models require the numerical solution of systems of reaction-diffusion equations on the evolving cell membrane and then the solution state is used to drive the evolution of the cell edge… (More)
