A resolution of the chemotactic wave paradox

Hofer, T. and Maini, P. K. and Sherratt, J. A. and Chaplain, M. A. J. and Chauvet, P. and Metevier, D. and Montes, P. C. and Murray, J. D. (1994) A resolution of the chemotactic wave paradox. Applied Mathematics Letters, 7 (2). pp. 1-5.



We propose an extension of the standard model for cell chemotaxis which explicitly accounts for the adaptation of the chemotactic response. We show that this model resolves the “chemotactic wave paradox” of slime mould aggregation in a natural way.
