Abstract:
Oscillations in the concentration of calcium inside cells (practically every single cell in your body) control a large number of processes, ranging from muscular contraction, to saliva secretion, to gene expression, to cell differentiation. Because the underlying dynamics are so complicated and highly nonlinear, mathematical models are useful for helping us understand these oscillations. I'll present one example of how a mathematical model can help us understand some fundamental things about calcium oscillations, and help us design experiments to test our hypotheses. Conversely, I'll then show how these models can pose new and nontrivial mathematical questions.
