Magnetohydrodynamic convectons

Abstract Numerical continuation is used to compute branches of spatially localized structures in convection in an imposed vertical magnetic field. In periodic domains with finite spatial period,

Spatial Localization in Dissipative Systems

Spatial localization is a common feature of physical systems, occurring in both conservative and dissipative systems. This article reviews the theoretical foundations of our understanding of spatial

Scattering of traveling spots in dissipative systems.

This work focuses on the colliding dynamics of traveling spots arising in a three-component system and study how the transition of scattering dynamics is brought about.

Dissipative solitons

The present review summarizes experimental and theoretical work dealing with self-organized solitary localized structures (LSs) that are observed in spatially extended nonlinear dissipative systems

Pulse Dynamics in a Three-Component System: Existence Analysis

In this article, we analyze the three-component reaction-diffusion system originally developed by Schenk et al. (PRL 78:3781–3784, 1997). The system consists of bistable activator-inhibitor equations

On homoclinic snaking in optical systems.

The existence of localized structures, including so-called cavity solitons, in driven optical systems is discussed and the addition of a nonlocal nonlinearity may resolve this discrepancy by tilting the "snaking" bifurcation diagram characteristic of such problems.

Planar Radial Spots in a Three-Component FitzHugh–Nagumo System

Using geometric singular perturbation theory, the existence and stability regions of radially symmetric stationary spot solutions are delineated and stable spots are shown to exist in appropriate parameter regimes, opening up the possibility of identifying and analysing drift and Hopf bifurcations, and their criticality, from the stationary spots described here.

Discontinuously propagating waves in the bathoferroin-catalyzed Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction incorporated into a microemulsion.

Three new types of discontinuously propagating waves are reported in the bathoferroin-catalyzed Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction dispersed in water-in-oil Aerosol OT microemulsion. Jumping waves

Generation of finite wave trains in excitable media

The results indicate that the presence of a large multiplicity of stable, accessible, multi-pulse states is a general property of simple models of excitable media.

Spontaneous formation of travelling localized structures and their asymptotic behaviour in binary fluid convection

Abstract We study spontaneous pattern formation and its asymptotic behaviour in binary fluid flow driven by a temperature gradient. When the conductive state is unstable and the size of the domain is
