Mathematical Modelling of the Micromicetes Colonies Growth Applying the Diffusion Equation

We have studied the mathematical model of
the growth of a micromycetes colony. The results of the numerical experiments have shown that the model given in
the work quite adequately reflects the emergence of the ring structures in the
micromycetes colonies.
