## Abstract

We consider a reaction–diffusion-type equation in a two-dimensional domain containing the interface between media with distinct characteristics along which the reactive term has a discontinuity of the first kind. We assume that the interface between the media, as well as the functions describing the reactions, periodically varies in time. We study the existence of a stable periodic solution of a problem with an internal layer. To prove the existence, stability, and local uniqueness of the solution, we use the asymptotic method of differential inequalities, which we generalized to a new class of problems with discontinuous nonlinearities.
