Instabilities of a three-dimensional localized spot.

Abstract

We investigate the behavior of localized spots in three spatial dimensions in a model two-variable system describing the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction in water-in-oil microemulsion. We find three types of instabilities: splitting of a single spot (i) into two spots, (ii) into a torus, and (iii) into an unstable shell that splits almost immediately to six or… (More)
