Finite Element numerical schemes for a chemo-attraction and consumption model

by   F. Guillén-González, et al.

This work is devoted to design and study efficient and accurate numerical schemes to approximate a chemo-attraction model with consumption effects, which is a nonlinear parabolic system for two variables; the cell density and the concentration of the chemical signal that the cell feel attracted to. We present several finite element schemes to approximate the system, detailing the main properties of each of them, such as conservation of cells, energy-stability and approximated positivity. Moreover, we carry out several numerical simulations to study the efficiency of each of the schemes and to compare them with others classical schemes.
