Abstract

In recent years, the study of spatial and temporal pattern formation has been vigorously pursued. The main goal has been to acquire an understanding of the complex patterns that are evident all around us: in the morphology of plants and animals, in crystal growth, in wave phenomena and in numerous other realms of nature. Indeed, patterns, in space as well as in time, are an ubiquitous element of the natural world.
