Description

Abstract CA3D is a simulation program, based on Monte Carlo techniques, which simulates the buffered diffusion of ions in the sub-membrane domain of cells. Two geometries of submembrane domains are considered. The first, a conical domain, applies to spherical cells with a locally uniform distribution of channels while the second, a cylindrical domain, is intended to model ciliar cells and presynaptic terminals. Other domains can be implemented in the code with ease. The entry of ions takes place throu... Title of program: CA3D Catalogue Id: ADNW_v1_0 Nature of problem The buffered diffusion of ions in the sub-membrane domain of cells is simulated by means of Monte Carlo methods. Two geometries of submembrane domains are considered. The first, a conical domain, applies to spherical cells with a locally uniform distribution of channels while the second, a cylindrical domain, is intended to model ciliar cells and presynaptic terminals. Other domains can be implemented in the code with ease. The entry of ions takes place through discrete entry points (channel por ...
