Coupling Geometric PDEs with Physics for Cell Morphology, Motility and Pattern Formation

Helfrich and mean curvature flow are widely used to describe the physics of cell membranes. In this talk I will show how such hydrodynamic models can be derived and coupled to additional physical effects such as reaction-diffusion kinetics, liquid crystals or the interaction of multiple cells. We will apply these models to numerically simulate cell motility and white blood cell margination.
