Abstract

Coupled systems of nonlinear reaction-diffusion PDE’s have been model pattern formation since the 1950’s. In particular, Turing proved that minor perturbations to initial conditions can result in exotic pattern formations. More recently, systems of PDE have been used to model plant/groundwater interactions. In this talk, we will discuss a recent work on mathematical models used to model the growth of vegetation on or around termite mounds in the African Savannah.
