Wavenumber selection in closed reaction-diffusion systems

Friday 16th March 2012 - 14:00 to 14:50
Motivated by the plethora of patterns observed in precipitation experiments starting with Liesegang's 1896 study, we investigate pattern formation in the wake of fronts in closed reaction-diffusion systems. We will briefly describe some models and the relation to phase separation models such as the Cahn-Hilliard equation and the Phase-Field System. We will then present results that characterize patterns formed in the wake of fronts.
