Abstract

In spatially extended Turing-unstable systems, parameter variation should, in theory, produce only fully developed patterns. In experiment, however, localized patterns or solitons sitting on a smooth background often appear. Addition of a nonlocal nonlinearity can resolve this discrepancy by tilting the "snaking" bifurcation diagram characteristic of such problems.
