Multispecies reaction diffusion models and the Turing instability revisited

  title={Multispecies reaction diffusion models and the Turing instability revisited},
  author={Duccio Fanelli and Claudia Cianci and Francesca Di Patti},
  journal={arXiv: Biological Physics},
The Turing instability paradigm is revisited in the context of a multispecies diffusion scheme derived from a self-consistent microscopic formulation. The analysis is developed with reference to the case of two species. These latter share the same spatial reservoir and experience a degree of mutual interference due to the competition for the available resources. Turing instability can set in for all ratios of the main diffusivities, also when the (isolated) activator diffuses faster then the…

Pattern formation for reactive species undergoing anisotropic diffusion
AbstractTuring instabilities for a two species reaction-diffusion system is studied under anisotropic diffusion. More specifically, the diffusion constants which characterize the ability of the
Stochastic patterns in a 1D Rock-Paper-Scissor model with mutation


Stochastic Turing patterns in the Brusselator model.
Interestingly, the region of parameter yielding to the stochastic self-organization is wider than that determined via the conventional Turing approach, suggesting that the condition for spatial order to appear can be less stringent than customarily believed.

Models in ecology
The predator-prey systems without age structure, and the statistical mechanics of populations, show clear signs of coevolution, as well as of stabilization and complexity, at a single trophic level.
Exploring stable pattern formation in models of tussock moth populations
Both stable patterning and rapid extinction of the host population are initial-condition dependent outcomes of the general and specific models, implying that an intrinsically generated stable host pattern is feasible within the tussock moth system.

Partial differential equations for self-organization in cellular and developmental biology
This review will focus upon modelling how cell-based dynamics orchestrate the emergence of higher level structure within cellular systems, and assess how developments at the scale of molecular biology have impacted on current theoretical frameworks, and the new modelling opportunities that are emerging as a result.
Switching-induced Turing instability.
It is shown that the appearance of the induced spatiotemporal structure depends on the ratio of two characteristic times, one determined by the external forcing and the other by the instability that drives the system at short times.
Bifurcation diagrams and Turing patterns in a chemical self-replicating reaction-diffusion system with cross diffusion.
This work extends previous work on ideal replicators to include the square root rate and other possible nonlinearities, which it couple with an enzymatic sink, and obtains exact general relations for the Poincare-Adronov-Hopf and Turing bifurcations.
