This book deals with the modeling, analysis and simulation of problems arising in the life sciences, and especially in biological processes. The models and findings presented result from intensive discussions with microbiologists, doctors and medical staff, physicists, chemists and industrial engineers and are based on experimental data. They lead to a new class of degenerate density-dependent nonlinear reaction-diffusion convective equations that simultaneously comprise two kinds of degeneracy: porous-medium and fast-diffusion type degeneracy. To date, this class is still not clearly understood in the mathematical literature and thus especially interesting. The author both derives realistic life science models and their above-mentioned governing equations of the degenerate types and systematically studies these classes of equations. In each concrete case well-posedness, the dependence of solutions on boundary conditions reflecting some properties of the environment, and the large-time behavior of solutions are investigated and in some instances also studied numerically.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The general aim of this book is to derive and treat partial differential equations of reaction-diffusion-convection type with degeneracies modelling some problems in the life sciences. ... a valuable source of reference for researchers using partial differential equations for modelling biological processes. Postgraduate students with an appropriate background ... may also find several chapters of the book useful." (Jozsef Zoltan Farkas, Mathematical Reviews, February, 2014)
