Project Details


The two-species reaction-diffusion model developed by Lengyel and Epstein represents a key to understanding the recently observed Turing structures in the chlorite-iodide-malonic acid (or CIMA) reaction. In this project we study the emergence, growth, competition and final stabilization of various concentration patterns through numerical simulation of the CIMA model. Special emphasis is given to studying the stable localized structures rendered possible by the strongly subcritical character of the Turing bifurcation
