Functional differential equations arising in cell-growth

Wake, Graeme and Begg, R E (2009) Functional differential equations arising in cell-growth. Not specified . (Submitted)



Non-local differential equations are notoriously difficult to solve. Cell-growth models for population growth of a cohort structured by size, simultaneously growing and dividing, give rise to a class of non-local eigenvalue problems, whose “principal” eigenvalue is the time-constant for growth/decay. These and other novel non-local problems are described and solved in special cases in this paper.
