The calculation of optimal structures in reaction-diffusion models is of great importance in many physicochemical systems. We propose here a simple method to monitor the number of interphases for long times by using a boundary flux condition as a control. We consider as an illustration a 1-D Allen-Cahn equation with Neumann boundary conditions. Numerical examples are given and perspectives for the application of this approach to electrochemical systems are discussed. 



Carbon-Based Electrodes for Lithium Air Batteries: Scientific and Technological Challenges from a Modeling Perspective

The carbon-based positive electrode of Lithium Air Batteries (LABs) is the component where the major competitive mechanisms occur, such as the electrochemical reactions leading to the formation and

Numerical approximations of Allen-Cahn and Cahn-Hilliard equations

Stability analyses and error estimates are carried out for a number of commonly used numerical schemes for the Allen-Cahn and Cahn-Hilliard equations. It is shown that all the schemes we considered

Large-time asymptotics, vanishing viscosity and numerics for 1-D scalar conservation laws

It is proved that, at the numerical level, the large time dynamics depends on the amount of numerical viscosity introduced by the scheme: while Engquist-Osher and Godunov yield the same N-wave asymptotic behavior, the Lax-Friedrichs scheme leads to viscous self-similar profiles, corresponding to the asymPTotic behavior of the solutions of the continuous viscous Burgers equation.
