"Plant Root Hair Growth" by Sarah Eichhorn, Ph.D.

A mathematic model for studying the factors affecting root hair growth in the plant Arabidopsis Thaliana will be presented.

The theoretical model results will be combined with experimental data to analyze the growth rate and tip shape of developing root hairs.
Mathematical tools used in this study include the linear elasticity theory, partial differential equations, least squares approximation, and basic statistics. This talk will be aimed at a general math audience and only a calculus background will be assumed for most of the material.
