Posted to arXiv - A Novel A Priori Simulation Algorithm for Absorbing Receivers in Diffusion-Based Molecular Communication Systems
Our paper "A Novel A Priori Simulation Algorithm for Absorbing Receivers in Diffusion-Based Molecular Communication Systems" was posted to arXiv. This paper shows how a Monte Carlo type approach can be used to efficiently simulate surface absorption in microscopic particle-based simulations. Compared with the usual method for simulating microscopic surface absorption, the proposed scheme can speed up simulations by many orders of magnitude with a very small loss in accuracy. The paper was co-authored with Yiran Wang and Nan Yang and submitted for journal publication. An implementation of this algorithm is included in the AcCoRD simulator (Actor-based Communication via Reaction-Diffusion).

GLOBECOM will be in Abu Dhabi from 9-13 December, 2018.
Posted to arXiv - Algorithm for Mesoscopic Advection-Diffusion
Our paper "Algorithm for Mesoscopic Advection-Diffusion" was posted to arXiv. The title is pretty straightforward; we present and implement an algorithm to simulate both diffusion and flow within the spatial SSA (also know as the spatial Gillespie or mesoscopic simulation algorithm). These kinds of simulations divide an environment into virtual subvolumes and track the numbers and types of molecules present in each subvolume. They have long been used to simulate reaction-diffusion systems, and our contribution adds bulk fluid flow. The paper was co-authored with Dimitrios Makrakis and submitted for journal publication. The full implementation of the algorithm is included in the AcCoRD simulator (Actor-based Communication via Reaction-Diffusion).
Special Issue on Mathematical Modeling, Implementations, Applications and Simulators for Molecular Communications
I helped to guest edit a Special Issue for Nano Communication Networks on "Mathematical Modeling, Implementations, Applications and Simulators for Molecular Communications". Five articles were accepted and they have been published in the June 2018 issue. A free link (will work until 5 July) to the editorial is here: https://authors.elsevier.com/a/1X3D-6hBrE2MlB
