Spatially Extended Monotone Mappings
This chapter deals with the study of travelling waves in discrete time spatially extended systems with monotone dynamics. Such systems appear for instance in alloy solidification, in population dynamics and in solid-state physics. Special emphasis is made on the existence of travelling waves, on the uniqueness of their velocity and on their relevance for the description of propagation phenomena in such systems.
