About this book


This book contains a collection of original research articles and review articles that describe novel mathematical modeling techniques and the application of those techniques to models of cell motility in a variety of contexts.  The aim is to highlight some of the recent mathematical work geared at understanding the coordination of intracellular processes involved in the movement of cells.  This collection will benefit researchers interested in cell motility as well graduate students taking a topics course in this area.
