    • Local and non-local mathematical modelling of signalling during embryonic development 

      Vasilopoulos, Georgios (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2012-08)
      Embryonic development requires cells to communicate as they arrange into the adult organs and tissues. The ability of cells to sense their environment, respond to signals and self-organise is of crucial importance. ...
    • Mathematical modelling of movement and glioma invasion 

      Eljazi, Radhia (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-10)
      Modelling movement is an important topic in fields ranging from ecology to medicine. In particular, glioma, an often fatal brain tumour is characterised by its diffuse invasion into the surrounding normal brain tissue, ...
    • Mathematical modelling of pattern formation in developmental biology 

      Hunt, Gordon S. (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2013-10)
      The transformation from a single cell to the adult form is one of the remarkable wonders of nature. However, the fundamental mechanisms and interactions involved in this metamorphic change still remain elusive. Due to ...
    • Mathematical models for wound healing lymphangiogenesis and other biomedical phenomena 

      Bianchi, Arianna (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Sciences, 2016-01)
      In this thesis we explore the mathematical modelling of wound healing lymphangiogenesis, tumour neoneurogenesis and Drosophila courtship behaviour. We begin by focussing on the mathematical modelling of lymphatic ...
    • Non-local models of cell-cell interactions in development 

      Bloomfield, Jennifer Martha (Heriot-Watt University Mathematical and Computer Science, 2011-04)
      This thesis explores pattern formation caused by cell-cell interactions in animal tissues during development, whether that patterning be natural or experimental. We produce three non-local integrodifferential equation ...
