Modeling microbial depolymerization process of exogenous type with consumption rate and microbial growth

Masaji Watanabe, Fusako Kawai

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A microbial depolymerization process of exogenous type is studied. A mathematical model for microbial population is proposed. Inverse problems for a molecular factor and a time factor of a degradation rate are described. Numerical results based on experimental outcomes are presented. Techniques to solve inverse problems with exponential approximation of residual polymer are illustrated, and numerical results are presented.
