Abstract

I will review three decades of work on Turing patterns in our laboratory, from the discovery of pattern formation in the CIMA reaction to recent experiments on three-dimensional patterns using tomographic techniques. I will discuss modeling efforts (including the Lengyel-Epstein model), approaches to designing systems that display Turing patterns, the effects of external perturbation, and the role of “structured media” (gels, microemulsions, surfaces).
