The Pixel Array (PA) Method, originally introduced by Spivak et. al., is a fast method for solving nonlinear or linear systems. One of its distinguishing features is that it presents all solutions within a bounding box, represented by a plot whose axes are the values of "exposed variables." Here we develop a set-theoretic variant of the PA method, named the Pixel Array Solution-Set (PASS) method, that gives PA access to "hidden variables" whose values are not displayed on plot axes. We evaluate…

The Pixel Array Method
The Pixel array method is a method that was proposed only a few years ago. It is used for finding all solutions of a set of equations within a certain bound. The pixel array method has a few strong


Pixel Arrays: A fast and elementary method for solving nonlinear systems
The pixel array method for approximating all solutions in a bounding box for an arbitrary nonlinear system of relations is presented, and it is found that with even a single unexposed variable the method was more than 10x faster than Julia's NLsolve.
A Study of Numerical Methods for Reaction-Diffusion Equations
The results of the study with twelve different numerical integration schemes indicates that numerical diffusion can reduce accuracy significantly, that numerical dispersion truncation errors can reduced accuracy if they are sufficiently large, and that an accurate representation of the reaction terms in the difference equations is important to retain overall accuracy.
Finite-element solution of reaction-diffusion equations with advection
Reaction-diffusion equations arise in many chemical and biological settings. Solutions to these equations exhibit a wide variety of structures, including pattern formation and traveling waves. In

An approximate method for describing the evolution of solitonlike initial conditions to solitons for the sine-Gordon equation is developed based on using a soliton like pulse with variable parameters in an averaged Lagrangian to determine ordinary differential equations governing the development of the pulse parameters.
The non-local Fisher-KPP equation: travelling waves and steady states
We consider the Fisher–KPP equation with a non-local saturation effect defined through an interaction kernel ϕ(x) and investigate the possible differences with the standard Fisher–KPP equation. Our
