Cubic Autocatalysis: Exploring the Gray–Scott Model

Application ID: 102751

A deceptively simple system of two species and two reactions, describing the autocatalytic conversion of a substance, is shown to display a surprisingly exotic behavior. Starting from a 0D CSTR description, a 2D reaction-diffusion problem is formulated showing rich patterns stemming from the multistability of the underlying reaction network.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
