Scott McCalla from Departement of Mathematical Sciences will give an Applied Math seminar on Thursday, December 3rd,
3:10-4:00 pm in Wilson 1-144 with the title "Arrested fronts and nonlocality in biological pattern formation"
Abstract: Biological pattern formation has been extensively studied using reaction-diffusion models. These models are inherently local, however many biological systems are known to exhibit nonlocality. In this talk I will discuss pattern forming mechanisms, both local and nonlocal, in the contact of zebrafish skin striping and bacterial colony formation. This will lead to a nonlocal framework to understand arrested fronts in biological systems.
