Modeling of Natural Science Phenomena: Comparison of Theory with Experiment

The four speakers develop mathematical models relevant to the phenomena of microbial transport in groundwater, single-ion channel diffusion, and Turing pattern formation for chemical reactions and for exploitation interactions, respectively. Then the theoretical predictions deduced from analytical analyses of these partial differential equation model systems are compared to experimental data. Here the latter term is being interpreted in its broadest sense to include the results of both observational and numerical experiments. The purpose of these investigations is to use such comparisons to validate the models involved and the procedures employed.

The proposed minisymposium has been organized around the themes of computational biology and applied partial differential equations, both of which are stated areas of emphasis for this conference. Numerical and applied analysts, molecular and developmental biologists, chemical and biological physicists, ecological and environmental scientists, and computational and biological fluid dynamicists should find it of interest.
