Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


I will discuss bi-stable reaction-diffusion equations in cylinders with varying cross-sections motivated by biology and medicine. The aim is to understand the effect of the non-homogenous medium on propagation or blocking of advancing waves. The role played by the geometry of the domain of propagation is of particular interest for these models. I will report on joint work with Juliette Bouhours and Guillemette Chapuisat.
