Overview

PPE-PDE project, by Emilie Peynaud

The PPE-PDE project is written in Python. Its name stands for "Python Parameter Estimation in Partial Differential Equation". Is was developped in the framework of Laura Wamba Mackeng's master thesis project. The code computes estimations of some parameters of the C-Root model from synthetic data. The purpose of the work was to test basic methods like the least square method in simplified test cases. The C-Root model was designed to simulate root systems growth. It is based on the time dependent advection-reaction-diffusion equation.
