Age-dependent equations with nonlinear diffusion

  • Christoph Walker (Universität Hannover, Germany)
A3 01 (Sophus-Lie room)


In this talk we shall focus on nonlinear problems that naturally arise in the study of the dynamics of populations structured by age and spatial position. We consider nonlinear diffusion and nonlinear age boundary conditions both of which depending possibly non-locally with respect to time on the population density. The abstract approach is applied to a concrete model for the swarming phenomenon of the bacterium Proteus mirabilis.
