Math bio seminar: “Pushed and pulled invasion fronts in parabolic PDEs” (Matt Holzer)

December 4, 2023
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

DRL 4C4

Speaker: Matt Holzer (George Mason University)

Abstract: Invasion fronts refer to fronts that propagate into unstable states. This talk will provide a review of some of the theoretical aspects of invasion fronts and discuss current research efforts. These fronts are often categorized as pushed or pulled and the talk will cover theoretical and numerical aspects of locating these fronts and identifying their speeds as well as their relevance to applications.
