Abstract

We introduce inhomogeneous, substrate dependent cell division in a nonlinear matrix model of size-structured population growth in the chemostat, first introduced by Gage et al. [7] and later analyzed by Smith [11]. We show that mass conservation is verified, and conclude that our system admits one non zero globally stable equilibrium, which we express explicitly. We then proceed to several numerical simulations, and briefly compare the prediction of the model to data, whose obtention we discuss.
