题目:Some mathematical problems in HIV modeling

报告人: Prof. Claude-Michel Brauner   厦门大学

Abstract:

Over the past thirty years, there has been much research in the mathematical modeling of Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the virus which causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). The research directions have been twofold:
(i)  the epidemiology of AIDS; (ii) the immunology of HIV as a pathogen. We are interested in the latter approach.
Mathematical models have been proved valuable in understanding the in vivo dynamics of the virus. A gamut of ODE models for the target T cells, the infected cells and the virus particles has been developed to describe the immune system and its interaction with HIV. They have contributed significantly to the understanding of HIV basic biology.
Recently, the effect of spatial diffusion has been taken into account in HIV modeling, especially in the case of a 2D heterogeneous environment.
In this talk, we intend to discuss some ODE and PDE models, and related mathematical issues: stability, Hopf bifurcation, homogenization
