Current Topics in Reaction-Diffusion Systems
In these lectures, I want to outline various topics of high current interest in the theory of reaction-diffusion systems. I say “theory”, but in fact they all reside in the applied side of the theory, as in all cases they are motivated by applications in the natural sciences. RD systems, in fact, provide an extremely fertile source of models in all these sciences. In accordance with the theme of the conference, the applications will by and large be related to dissipative structures of one kind or another.
