A size structured model of cell dwarfism. (English) Zbl 0989.92014

Summary: This work is devoted to analyzing the growth of a cell population where cellular development is characterized by cellular size. By size we mean some quantified measure of cellular mass. The issues treated here include: (1) existence and uniqueness of solutions, (2) stability and instability of solutions, and (3) biological interpretation of results.
