Abstract

This paper provides a detailed stochastic analysis of leucocyte cell movement based on the dynamics of a rigid body. The cell's behavior is studied in two relevant anisotropic environments displaying adhesion mediated movement (haptotaxis) and stimulus mediated movement (chemotaxis). This behavior is modeled by diffusion processes on three successively longer time scales, termed locomotion, translocation, and migration.
