Coast to Coast Seminar Series: "Pattern Formation in Reaction-Diffusion Systems"

Tuesday, March 3, 2009
11:30 - 12:30

Dr. David Iron
Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Dalhousie University


In this talk I will discuss the behaviour of two component reaction-diffusion systems. Typically the diffusion of one of the components will be much larger than the other. The difference in the diffusion coefficients can result in the formation of localized structures. I will consider the types of structures which can be formed and the wide variety of bifurcations these structures may undergo.
