Nonlinear waves in a simple model of high-grade glioma

biological literature, there is a vast range of values for the diffusion and proliferation coefficients. To carry out the estimations, we resort to the following value for the proliferation ρ = 0.2 day −1 , which is in the range [0.01–0.5] day −1 , taken from [ 28 , 54 ] and D = 0.05 mm 2 /day (which is in the range [0.0004–0.1] mm 2 /day) [ 39 ]. Finally, we take α = 1/10 day −1 , L = 85 mm, x 0 = 10 mm, c = c min = 2 ( 1 − β ) , $\begin{array}{} c=c_{\text{min}}=2\sqrt{(1-\beta)}, \end{array} $ M = 0.3, b = 0.005, a = ( cc 2 − 4 ( 1 − β − V

Pharmacological Characteristics Analysis of Two Molecular Structures

structures (See Farahani et al. [ 1 ], Jamil et al. [ 2 ], Gao et al. [ 3 – 7 ] and Gao and Wang [ 8 – 10 ] for more details). The notation and terminology that were used but undefined in this paper can be found in [ 11 ]. Now, we present some important indices which will be computed in the next section. The Shultz polynomial is denoted as S c ( G , x ) = Σ { u , v } ⊆ V ( G ) ( d ( u ) + d ( v ) ) x d ( u , v ) . $$\begin{array}{} \displaystyle Sc(G,x) = \mathop \Sigma \limits_{\{ u,v\} \subseteq V(G)} (d(u) + d(v)){x^{d(u,v)}}. \end{array}$$ The additively

Recently, Ghorbani and Hosseinzadeh [ 11 ] defined the eccentric versions of Zagreb indices. These are named as third and fourth Zagreb indices and defined
