Effects of disorder on reaction diffusion systems : An analytical aproach

  • M. A. Rodriguez
Part of the Nonlinear Phenomena and Complex Systems book series (NOPH, volume 1)


We show several effects produced by disorder using reaction diffusion models. When the system has not organized structures only effects due to the subdiffusion of the microscopic components appear. With organized structures the effects become more complex depending on the involved sizes and characteristic times. These facts are analytically illustrated with an annihilation reaction system and a Ballast resistor.
