Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The excitable reaction-diffusion (R-D) systems of biological and chemical origin harbour a wealth of patterns and structures, not all of which have been modelled by the full R-D equations. The analytical and numerical facility offered by the eikonal approach to the R-D equation is exploited here in the demonstration of existence and stability of a class of solutions on a torus.
