Mathematical models of cranial neural crest cell migration

Abstract:

From the developing embryo to the evacuation of football stadiums, the migration and movement of populations of individuals is a vital part of human life. Such movement often occurs in crowded conditions, where the space occupied by each individual impacts on the freedom of others. This thesis aims to analyse and understand the effects of occupied volume (volume exclusion) on the movement of the individual and the population.

We consider, as a motivating system, the rearrangement of...
