We study the effect of superdiffusion on the instability in reaction-diffusion systems. It is shown that reaction-superdiffusion systems close to a Turing instability are equivalent to a time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau model and the corresponding free energy is introduced. This generalized free energy which depends on the superdiffusion exponent governs the stability, dynamics, and the fluctuations of reaction-superdiffusion systems near the Turing bifurcation. In addition, we show that for a…

Pattern formation in reaction-diffusion systems in the presence of non-Markovian diffusion.

The results indicate that going beyond the Markovian approximation might be necessary to study the formation of spatiotemporal patterns even in systems with short-term memory, and opens up a new window into the control of these patterns using memory.

Mathematical modelling of pattern formation in activator–inhibitor reaction–diffusion systems with anomalous diffusion

Auto-wave solutions in nonlinear time-fractional reaction–diffusion systems are investigated. It is shown that stability of steady-state solutions and their subsequent evolution are mainly determined

Pattern Formation through Temporal Fractional Derivatives

It is shown that a classical prey-predator diffusive model with the Holling II functional response can form steadily spatial patterns even though its first-derivative counterpart can’t exhibit any steady pattern, implying that the temporal fractional derivatives can induce spatial patterns, which enriches the current mechanisms of pattern formation.

A modified Ising model of Barabási–Albert network with gene-type spins

This work systematically evaluates the translation of computational techniques from solid-state physics to network models that closely resemble biological networks and develops specific translational rules to tackle problems unique to living systems on the basis of apparent asymmetry between biological states.

Turing Patterns in the Lengyel-Epstein System with Superdiffusion

Turing instability and pattern formation in the Lengyel–Epstein (L–E) model with superdiffusion are investigated in this paper. The effects of superdiffusion on the stability of the homogeneous ste...

Turing pattern dynamics in an activator-inhibitor system with superdiffusion.

It is concluded that small ratio (than unity) of anomalous diffusion exponent between the inhibitor and activator is more likely to promote the emergence of the Turing pattern, relative to the normal diffusion.

Existence of Turing Instabilities in a Two-Species Fractional Reaction-Diffusion System

A two-species fractional reaction-diffusion system is introduced to model activator- inhibitor dynamics with anomalous diffusion such as occurs in spatially inhomogeneous media and suggests that Turing instabilities can exist even when the diffusion coefficient of the activator exceeds that of the inhibitor.

Turing pattern formation in fractional activator-inhibitor systems.

An algebraic stability analysis of the homogeneous steady-state solution in fractional activator-inhibitor systems is carried out and it is shown that the Turing instability precipitates the formation of complex spatiotemporal patterns.

Interaction of Turing and Hopf Modes in the Superdiffusive Brusselator Model Near a Codimension Two Bifurcation Point

Spatiotemporal patterns near a codimension-2 Turing-Hopf point of the one-dimensional superdiffusive Brusselator model are analyzed. The superdiffusive Brusselator model differs from its regular

Turing Pattern Formation in the Brusselator Model with Superdiffusion

The linear stability analysis shows that, unlike the case of normal diffusion, the Turing instability can occur even when diffusion of the inhibitor is slower than that of the initiator.

Hydrodynamic fluctuations at the convective instability

The effects of thermal fluctuations on the convective instability are considered. It is shown that the Langevin equations for hydrodynamic fluctuations are equivalent, near the instability, to a

The complex Ginzburg–Landau equation: an introduction

The complex Ginzburg–Landau equation (CGLE), probably the most celebrated nonlinear equation in physics, describes generically the dynamics of oscillating, spatially extended systems close to the

Turing pattern formation with fractional diffusion and fractional reactions

We have investigated Turing pattern formation through linear stability analysis and numerical simulations in a two-species reaction–diffusion system in which a fractional order temporal derivative
