Spontaneous pattern formation may arise in (bio) chemical networks coupled to diffusion, i.e. an initial homogeneous distribution of certain chemical species may become unstable by changing variables such as enzyme activity or simply the size (radius) of the sphere. Hereby a new inhomogeneous, yet stable, concentration distribution is set up within the sphere, without any outside control imposing the geometry of the pattern, which is created spontaneously. Such spatial dissipative structures… CONTINUE READING
