Zusammenfassung (Englisch)

In this master thesis we will give a short introduction to modeling actin filament dynamics. This includes a brief overview over the most important facts of actin and the effects that influence its temporal evolution.

The main part will be the derivation and discussion of a simple model for the time evolution of actin filaments in the lamellipodium of a fish keratocyte. A second model will be presented, which features other aspects, to show another approach to the topic and to broaden the understanding.

We conclude by giving a short overview over other approaches in the literature and the most important actin influencing proteins.
