A moving grid finite element method applied to a model biological pattern generator
Madzvamuse A., Wathen AJ., Maini PK.
Many problems in biology involve growth. In numerical simulations it can therefore be very convenient to employ a moving computational grid on a continuously deforming domain. In this paper we present a novel application of the moving grid finite element method to compute solutions of reaction-diffusion systems in two-dimensional continuously deforming Euclidean domains. A numerical software package has been developed as a result of this research that is capable of solving generalised Turing models for morphogenesis. © 2003 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
