Keywords: diffusion, directed movements, taxis, spatial heterogeneity, pattern formation
Diffusion has been used extensively in many scientific disciplines to model a wide variety of phenomena. The Mathematics of Diffusion focuses on the qualitative properties of solutions to nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations and systems in connection with
The book systematically explores the interplay between different diffusion rates from the viewpoint of pattern formation, particularly TuringÕs diffusionÐdriven instability in both homogeneous and heterogeneous environments, and the roles of random diffusion, directed movements, and spatial heterogeneity in the classical LotkaÐVolterra competition systems.
Interspersed throughout the book are many simple, fundamental, and important open problems for readers to investigate.
This book is intended for researchers and graduate students in the areas of elliptic or parabolic equations and in mathematical biology.
