Abstract.We study the transient dynamics of single species reaction diffusion systems whose reaction terms f(u) vary nonlinearly near u ≈ 0, specifically as f(u) ≈ u2 and f(u) ≈ u3. We consider three cases, calculate
their traveling wave fronts and speeds analytically and solve the equations numerically with different initial conditions to study the approach to the asymptotic front shape and speed. Observed time evolution is found to be
quite sensitive to initial conditions and to display in…
