"Reaction-diffusion equations in biology"

Category: Colloquium


Tea time @ 4:00
Talk begins @ 4:10
Ends @ 5:10

Reaction-diffusion equations describe a variety of physical and biological phenomena. In this talk, I begin by presenting the classical Fisher-KPP equation and its significance to ecology. I then describe recent results on other PDEs of reaction-diffusion type, including non-local equations arising in evolutionary ecology, as well as ones that model tumor growth (joint with Inwon Kim). I will highlight the mathematical challenges and techniques that arise in the analysis of these PDEs.
