Coexistence results for catalysts

  title={Coexistence results for catalysts},
  author={Rick Dnrrett and Glen Swindle},
In this paper we consider a modification o f Ziff, Gulari and Barshad's (1986) model o f oxidation o f carbon monoxide on a catalyst surface in which the reactants are mobile on the catalyst surface. We find regions in the parameter space in which poisoning occurs (the catalyst surface becomes completely occupied by one type of atom) and another in which there is a translation invariant stationary distribution in which the two atoms have positive density. The last result is proved by exploiting… CONTINUE READING
