Reaction-diffusion systems and external morphogen gradients: the two-dimensional case, with an application to skeletal pattern formation.


We investigate a reaction-diffusion system consisting of an activator and an inhibitor in a two-dimensional domain. There is a morphogen gradient in the domain. The production of the activator depends on the concentration of the morphogen. Mathematically, this leads to reaction-diffusion equations with explicitly space-dependent terms. It is well known that… (More)
