This year's KAIST Mathematical Biology Conference is held in a format of mini-school.
Principal lecturers and lecture topics
1) Introduction, random walks, chemotaxis and kinetic models, 2) Correlated random walk in 1-D, applications to chemotaxis and swarming, 3) Transport equations, mathematical set up and Krasnoselskii's theorem, 4) The turning operator, Pearson walk and movement in a fibre network,
5) The diffusion limit, 6) Structure of the diffusion tensor, anisotropy and persistence, 7) The anisotropic case, 8) Applications to sea turtle navigation, wolf movement and brain tumor growth
Hiroshi Matano (University of Tokyo, Japan) will give 5 lectures on "Front propagation in reaction-diffusion systems". His tentative lecture schedule is:
1) KPP equation - backgrounds, 2) Traveling waves and spreading fronts in spatially periodic, KPP equations - part 1: Linear principle, variational formulation, optimal coefficients, 3) part 2: 2D stratified medium, spreading shape, related epidemic model, 4) Spreading fronts in prey-predator systems-part 1: formulation, main results, leading edge, intermediate zone, 5) part 2: final zone, Lyapunov functional, spatially periodic case, Wulff shape
