Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Pattern formation in excitable reaction-diffusion systems: the eikonal analysis on the torus

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.
