Abstract A steepest descent approximation scheme is derived for a recently developed model for the dynamics of the actin cytoskeleton in the lamellipodia of living cells. The scheme is used as a numerical method for the simulation of thought experiments, where a lamellipodial fragment is pushed by a pipette, and subsequently changes its shape and position.
