Catalytic Membrane Reactor Model as a Laboratory for Pattern Emergence in Reaction-diffusion-advection Media

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Reaction-diffusion-advection media on semi-infinite domains are important in chemical, biological and ecological applications, yet remain a challenge for pattern formation theory. To demonstrate the rich emergence of nonlinear traveling waves and stationary periodic states, we review results obtained using a membrane reactor as a case model. Such solutions coexist in overlapping parameter regimes and their temporal stability is determined by the boundary conditions which either preserve or destroy the translational symmetry, i. e., selection mechanisms under realistic Danckwerts boundary conditions. A brief outlook is given at the end.
