Some Fundamental Issues of Mathematical Simulation in Biology

  • V. N. Razzhevaikin


Some directions of simulation in biology leading to original formulations of mathematical problems are overviewed. Two of them are discussed in detail: the correct solvability of first-order linear equations with unbounded coefficients and the construction of a reaction–diffusion equation with nonlinear diffusion for a model of genetic wave propagation.
