Nonlinear convective stability of a critical pulled front undergoing a Turing bifurcation at its back: a case study

We investigate a specific reaction-diffusion system that admits a monostable pulled front propagating at constant critical speed. When a small parameter changes sign, the stable equilibrium behind

Stability of traveling waves in partly parabolic systems

We review recent results on stability of traveling waves in partly parabolic reaction-diffusion systems with stable or marginally stable equilibria. We explain how attention to what are apparently

Invasion into remnant instability: a case study of front dynamics

We study the invasion of an unstable state by a propagating front in a peculiar but generic situation where the invasion process exhibits a remnant instability. Here, remnant instability refers to

Emergence and Propagation of Patterns in Nonlocal Reaction-Diffusion Equations Arising in the Theory of Speciation

Emergence and propagation of patterns in population dynamics is related to the process of speciation, appearance of new biological species. This process will be studied with a nonlocal

On the existence of stationary solutions for some systems of non-Fredholm integro-differential equations.

We prove the existence of stationary solutions for certain systems of reactiondiffusion type equations in the corresponding H2 spaces. Our method relies on the fixed point theorem when the elliptic

Stability of Pulse Solutions for the Discrete FitzHugh{Nagumo System

We show that the fast travelling pulses of the discrete FitzHugh{Nagumo system in the weak-recovery regime are nonlinearly stable. The spectral conditions that need to be veried involve linear

Invasion Generates Periodic Traveling Waves (Wavetrains) in Predator-Prey Models with Nonlocal Dispersal

The author considers the generation of periodic Traveling waves by the invasion of the unstable coexistence state in cyclic predator-prey systems with nonlocal dispersal for which the dispersal kernel is thin-tailed (exponentially bounded) and produces formulae for the wave period and amplitude.

Nonlinear stability of high Lewis number combustion fronts

In this paper a mathematical model is considered that describes combustion processes characterized by a very high Lewis number. The model is known to support a wavefront that asymptotically connects



Nonlinear Stability of Bifurcating Front Solutions for the Taylor-Couette Problem

We consider the Taylor-Couette problem in an infinitely extended cylindrical domain. There exist modulated front solutions which describe the spreading of the stable Taylor vortices into the region

Nonlinear convective instability of fronts: a case study

We consider a model system, consisting of two nonlinearly coupled partial differential equations, to investigate nonlinear convective instabilities of travelling waves. The system exhibits front

Hopf Bifurcation and Exchange of Stability in Diffusive Media

Abstract.We consider solutions bifurcating from a spatially homogeneous equilibrium under the assumption that the associated linearization possesses a continuous spectrum up to the imaginary axis,

Stable transport of information near essentially unstable localized structures

When the steady states at infinity become unstable through a pattern forming bifurcation, a travelling wave may bifurcate into a modulated front which is time-periodic in a moving frame. This

Essential instabilities of fronts: bifurcation, and bifurcation failure

Various instability mechanisms of fronts in reaction-diffusion systems are analysed; the emphasis is on instabilities that have the potential to create modulated (i.e. time-periodic) waves near the

Local stability of critical fronts in nonlinear parabolic partial differential equations

For the Ginzburg-Landau equation and similar nonlinear parabolic partial differential equations on the real line, we prove the nonlinear stability of the slowest monotonic front solution by computing

Abstract: We consider front solutions of the Swift–Hohenberg equation ∂tu= -(1+ ∂x2)2u + ɛ2u -u3. These are traveling waves which leave in their wake a periodic pattern in the laboratory frame. Using

Localized travelling waves to reaction-diffusion systems on the real line are investigated. The issue addressed in this work is the transition to instability which arises when the essential spectrum
