This unique volume provides a valuable overview on the current state of work in the rapidly developing field of reaction-diffusion equations. Some of the articles survey particular applications such as in combustion theory, electrochemistry, and neurobiology. Other papers focus on the analytic behavior of reaction-diffusion equations such as blow-up, the formation of patterns, travelling wave solutions, and the Conley index. The contributors are internationally respected experts in their respective fields.
'presents the proceedings of a symposium year held in 1987/88 at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh and contains 10 selected contributions by renowned researchers in this area'
