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. 



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

Bromination Reactions Important in the Mechanism of the Belousov−Zhabotinsky System

We investigate the kinetics of bromination of malonic acid, bromomalonic acid, tartronic acid, and ethanetetracarboxylic acid in 1 M sulfuric acid with bromine and hypobromous acid as brominating

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.
