SIGMA Seminar
A variational approach to standing pulse solutions of a skew-gradient system

From vegetation patterns in an ecological system to propagating waves in a nerve conduction system, patterns emerge everywhere in nature. From a mathematical perspective, reaction- diffusion models are widely used to understand the mechanism underlying pattern formation. In this talk, we introduce reaction-diffusion models with a skew gradient structure which encompasses an important class of activator-inhibitor type systems that exhibit localized patterns. A variational framework is proposed to show the existence of standing pulse solutions to a skew-gradient system.
