A dynamical systems approach to actin-based motility in Listeria monocytogenes
Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University - Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
Accepted: 18 October 2010
A simple kinematic model for the trajectories of Listeria monocytogenes is generalized to a dynamical system rich enough to exhibit the resonant Hopf bifurcation structure of excitable media and simple enough to be studied geometrically. It is shown how L. monocytogenes trajectories and meandering spiral waves are organized by the same type of attracting set.
