Partial Differential Equations


We study a nonlinear reaction–diffusion system modeled by a system of two parabolic-type equations with power-law nonlinearities. Such systems describe the processes of nonlinear diffusion in reacting two-component media. We construct multiparameter families of exact solutions and distinguish the cases of blow-up solutions and exact solutions periodic in time and anisotropic in spatial variables that can be represented in elementary functions.
