Analysis of biological pattern formation models

Abstract:

In this thesis we examine mathematical models which have been suggested as possibile mechanisms for forming certain biological patterns. We analyse them in detail attempting to produce the requisite patterns both analytically and numerically. A reaction diffusion system in two spatial dimensions with anisotropic diffusion is examined in detail and the results compared with certain snakeskin patterns. We examine two other variants to the standard reaction diffusion system: a system where t...
