  1. 1. Mathematical Models in Cellular Biophysics

    Author : Jacob Kowalewski; Hjalmar Brismar; Erik Fransén; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Calcium oscillations; Diffusion; Dopamine receptors; Mathematical models; Computer simulations; FRAP; Physics; Fysik;

    Abstract : Cellular biophysics deals with, among other things, transport processes within cells. This thesis presents two studies where mathematical models have been used to explain how two of these processes occur. Cellular membranes separate cells from their exterior environment and also divide a cell into several subcellular regions. READ MORE

  2. 2. From Penicillin Binding Proteins to Community Interventions : Mathematical and Statistical Models Related to Antibiotic Resistance

    Author : Patricia Geli Rolfhamre; Åke Svensson; Mikael Andersson; Dan I. Andersson; Karl Ekdahl; Bruce R. Levin; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; antibiotic resistance; mathematical modeling; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; penicillin binding protein; postantibiotic effect; reversibility; selection; community intervention; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance has become a major public health concern and mathematical models are important analytical tools for the understanding, evaluation and prediction of the resistance problem and related control strategies.The risk of emerging antibiotic resistance and selection has rarely been a concern in the design of antibiotic drug dosing regimens.

  3. 3. Stochastic Epidemic Models : Different Aspects of Heterogeneity

    Author : Mathias Lindholm; Tom Britton; Maria Deijfen; Gianpaolo Scalia Tomba; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik; matematisk statistik; Mathematical Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with the study of stochastic epidemic models for infectious diseases in heterogeneous populations. All diseases treated are of SIR type, i.e. individuals are either Susceptible, Infectious or Recovered (and immune). READ MORE

  4. 4. Homogenization of some new mathematical models in lubrication theory

    Author : Afonso Fernando Tsandzana; Peter Wall; Lars- Erik Persson; John Fabricius; Anders Holmbom; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lubrication theory; homogenization theory; Reynolds equation; cavitation; surfaces roughness; Stokes equation; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : We consider mathematical modeling of thin film flow between two rough surfaces which are in relative motion. For example such flows take place in different kinds of bearings and gears when a lubricant is used to reduce friction and wear between the surfaces. READ MORE
