Positivity preserving high order schemes for angiogenesis models

A. Carpio, E. Cebrian

Hypoxy induced angiogenesis processes can be described coupling an integrodifferential kinetic equation of Fokker-Planck type with a diffusion equation for the angiogenic factor. We propose high order positivity preserving schemes to approximate the marginal tip density by combining an asymptotic reduction with weighted essentially non oscillatory and strong stability preserving time discretization. We show that soliton-like solutions representing blood vessel formation and spread towards hypoxic regions are captured.
