A Mathematical Model of Adhesion Interactions between Living Cells A Mathematical Model of Adhesion Interactions between Living Cells

by Johnson, Casey P

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis presents a simple force-based model of moving and interacting cells that incorporates a realistic description of cell adhesion and applies it to a system of spherical cells. In addition, several results in matrix theory are proved with the end of showing that the equations produced by the model uniquely determine the motion of the system or cells.
