"The effect of domain growth on pattern selection in a model pattern generator"
4:30pm LCB 225
Spatial pattern formation arising through self-organisation has been
studied in great detail, but the role of domain growth in pattern
selection has received little attention. We will present preliminary
analysis of this phenomenon by considering the specific case of the
Turing reaction diffusion model for spatial pattern
formation. Application to pigment patterning in fish, ligamentation in
bivalves, and butterfly wing patterns will be presented.
