Temporal and spatial simulations of dynamical processes within a biological cell
Kevin Burrage (University of Queenland, Brisbane, Australia)
Abstract. Computational Cell Biology is a new and exciting field in which applied and computational mathematicians can make very significant contributions. In this talk I will discuss some of the modelling and simulation issues associated with understanding dynamical processes that take place within a biological cell. I will give a short overview of some of the elements of a cell and then discuss the nature of some of these dynamical processes. Mathematical elements that will be treated include discrete Markov processes, stochastic differential equations, fractional differential equations, anomalous diffusion and associated numerical techniques.
