Chemotaxis performance for different strategies. Figure with two panels showing chemotaxis performance for different strategies and different β. Panel A: Chemotaxis performance (as defined in Figure 2) for bacteria with adaptive response, as a function of β, for various values of λ as indicated on the plot, for d = 0.001 and τ = 1000.0. At higher sensitivities optimum value of β shifts to a wider range of higher values. Panel B: Chemotaxis performance for bacteria with linear response, as a function of β, for various values of λ as indicated on the plot, for d = 0.001 and τ = 1000.0.
