Traveling Wave Solutions

  • J. David Logan
Part of the Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics book series (IAM, volume 15)


In this chapter we study model problems that lead to an important, special class of solutions called traveling wave solutions. Examining the behavior of these solutions can give insights into the role of competing mechanisms in a given problem, for example, reaction versus dispersion or advection versus dispersion.
