Estimating the rate of absorption on partially permeable biological boundaries


In analysis of single particle tracking data, identifying and estimating the rate of absorption on a partially permeable boundary may be challenging. In this talk, I will present a technique for estimating the rate of absorption on these type of boundaries. This technique is based on calculating the probability of finding a particle performing Brownian motion in a region and maximum likelihood estimation. I will also talk about approximation of switching boundary with partially absorbing boundary.
