Mathematical Models for Facilitated Diffusion and the Brownian Ratchet
In this dissertation, mathematical models for two biophysically related topics are investigated: facilitated diffusion and the Brownian ratchet. Both phenomena exhibit counterintuitive behavior: in the case of facilitated diffusion, transport of a fast-moving ligand (e.g. oxygen) is enhanced through reversible association ...
