Traveling wave solutions with convex domains for a free boundary problem

Abstract

In this paper, a free boundary problem related to cell motility is discussed. This free boundary problem consists of an interface equation for the domain evolution and a parabolic equation governing actin concentration in the domain. In [10], the existence of traveling wave solutions with disk-shaped domains were shown in a special situation where a polymerization rate is specified. In this paper, by relaxing the condition for the polymerization rate, the previous result is extended to the existence of traveling wave solutions with convex domains.
