### A review on travelling wave solutions of one-dimensional reaction diffusion equations with non-linear diffusion term

Abstract:

In this paper we review the existence of different types of travelling wave solutions $u(x,t) = \phi(x - ct)$ of degenerate non-linear reaction-diffusion equations of the form $u_t = [D(u)u_x]_x + g(u)$ for different density-dependent diffusion coefficients D and kinetic part g. These include the non-linear degenerate generalized Fisher-KPP and the Nagumo equations. Also, we consider an equation whose diffusion coefficient changes sign as the diffusive substance increases. This describes a di...
