Numerical Analysis of a Mathematical Model for the Formation of Alzheimer’s Disease
GROUP Summer E Jenkins, Christopher A Negri, Amelia I Pompilio
Mathematics can be applied meaningfully to a variety of disciplines and research areas, especially the spread of disease. The pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease remains largely ambiguous in current research because of the complex relationships between cell types due to aging. In this project, we computationally study a mathematical model that is a system of coupled differential equations to represent such relationships between cells. We use Runge-Kutta methods and Euler’s method to study the model.
