Mode transitions in a model reaction-diffusion system driven by domain growth and noise.

Abstract:

Pattern formation in many biological systems takes place during growth of the underlying domain. We study a specific example of a reaction-diffusion (Turing) model in which peak splitting, driven by domain growth, generates a sequence of patterns. We have previously shown that the pattern sequences which are presented when the domain growth rate is sufficiently rapid exhibit a mode-doubling phenomenon. Such pattern sequences afford reliable selection of certain final patterns, thus addressing...
