Title: Global instability of the Keller-Segel model of slime mold aggregation for transient kinetic processes
Author: Tate, Kevin N.
Abstract: The onset of aggregation for slime mold aggregation is an important biological system that has been studied extensively because the system is simplistic by nature but also forms a solid baseline for more complicated systems . Keller and Segel were able to determine conditions for instability of the slime mold aggregation system for a linearized system . However , they had to employ strong assumptions on the kinetics of chemical components involved in the process in order to transform the system into a form they could study . Thus the main purpose of this thesis is to use recent technology to determine the consequences of using the simplified system as compared to the original system .
