Abstract

Mathematical techniques are applied to a microbial depolymerization process. A mathematical model for the transition of the weight distribution and the microbial population is described. Inverse problems for a molecular factor and a time factor of a degradation rate are derived. Numerical techniques to solve the inverse problems are illustrated, and numerical results are presented.
